(To be removed) Open virtual world file in virtual world editor

vrworld/edit will be removed in a future release. For more information, see Version History.





A vrworld object representing a virtual world.


The edit method opens the virtual world 3D file associated with the vrworld object in a virtual world editor. The Editor preference specifies the editor to use. See vrsetpref for details on setting preferences.

The editor saves any changes you make directly to a virtual world file. If the virtual world is open,

  • Use the save command in the virtual world editor to save the changes to a virtual world file. In the MATLAB® interface, the changes appear after you reload the virtual world.

  • Use the save method in the MATLAB software to replace the modified virtual world 3D file. Any changes you made in the editor are lost.

R2023b: To be removed

The vrworld/edit will be removed in a future release. Instead, use sim3d classes and Simulation 3D blocks to interface MATLAB and Simulink® with the Unreal Engine® 3D simulation environment. To get started, see Create 3D Simulations in Unreal Engine Environment.
