Update-importing allows you to retain whatever manual, post-translation work you did on the old model.You also keep any unchanged CAD-related features of the model.If a URDF converter exists for your CAD application, you may be able to export your model in URDF format and import the URDF file into the plug-in cannot export a part geometry file or translate a CAD constraint set, the software issues an error message.The error message identifies the bodies with missing geometry files and any unsupported constraints.Update-import respects the model-machine-subsystem hierarchy of an existing model.If you want to change this existing model hierarchy, you must manually edit the generated model or generate a new model from your CAD assembly or XML file. Inheritance Relationships Between Assemblies and Models. See Controlling Model Update at the Block Level for a complete explanation of the inherited structure and identity shared by assemblies and models based on them.
This block sits between the Simulink Subsystem blocks that represent the upper arm and lower arm bodies..
For example, the position state target data for the blocks only.
See Onshape Import for more information on exporting (and importing) CAD models from an Onshape account.
Note that model simplification is available for CAD import only.
URDF models have flat topologies with little need for topology simplification. The function uses the prior data file to keep the mapping between structure array indices and blocks consistent.
