Open the Web Viewer
Set up for Remote Viewing
To enable a person on a remote computer to use a web browser to view a virtual world that is connected to a Simulink® model:
In the Simulink 3D Animation™ Viewer, select Simulation > Block parameters > Allow viewing from the Internet.
If the Simulink 3D Animation Viewer is the default viewer, you can open that viewer from the Simulink Editor by double-clicking the VR Sink block.
Enable the Allow viewing from the Internet parameter.
Alternatively, to enable remote computers to view all opened virtual worlds with a web browser, in the MATLAB® Home tab, in the Environment section, use the Preferences > Simulink 3D Animation > Allow viewing from the Internet preference.
Connect the Web Viewer
In Simulink 3D Animation, open the virtual world that you want to view.
For a list of HTML5-enabled browsers, see https://www.x3dom.org/?page_id=9.
Connect to the local host HTTP port. To open the Web Viewer on:
The same computer on which Simulink 3D Animation runs, enter the following in your web browser:
A remote computer that does not have Simulink 3D Animation, in the
localhostwith the HTTP port of the host computer.
To change the HTTP port (for example, if a firewall blocks a port), set a different port number and restart MATLAB. To change the HTTP port, in the MATLAB Home tab, in the Environment section, use the Preferences > Simulink 3D Animation > HTTP Port> preference.
In the Web Viewer, from the list of open virtual worlds, select the one that you want to view.
