I know how to import a CAD model in stl or step format into MATLAB Simscape. Now, I wonder if there is any method or idea to export my MATLAB Simscape model into stl or step formats?
What I am trying to do is:
- To draw the cross section of a link using MATLAB function; Link_CrossSection(length,width). A 2D geometry of the link, with the ability to change its length and width, will be obtained.
- Then to use that MATLAB function in Simulink > Simscape > Solid > General Extrusion. A 3D CAD model of the link, with the ability to change and optimize its length and width during every simulation, will be obtained.
- Finally to export the Soild block into stl format, so that I can use the exported stl file in PDE toolbox and apply stress analysis study on the link during every simulation.
I managed to implement the first two points. I am trying to implement the third point but I am stuck in it. Is there any idea or solution to export the 3D body in Solid block into stl file?
Thanks in advance.
