Exported SimBiology model object


Exported SimBiology® models are limited-access models that can be simulated and accelerated. You can speedup simulation of exported models using Parallel Computing Toolbox™, and deploy exported models using MATLAB® Compiler™.

By default, all active dose objects, species, parameters, and compartments export with a SimBiology model, and are editable in the exported model object. You can limit which doses, species, parameters, and compartments are editable using additional options during export. Reactions, rules, and events are never editable in an exported model.


Use the export function to export a SimBiology model.
