Unreal Engine Simulation Environment Requirements and Limitations
Simulink® 3D Animation™ provides an interface to a simulation environment that is visualized using the Unreal Engine® from Epic Games®. This visualization engine comes installed with the toolbox. When simulating in this environment, keep these requirements and limitations in mind.
The table summarizes the software requirements for Windows®.
Integrated development environment (IDE)
Microsoft® DirectX® — If this software is not already installed on your machine and you try to simulate in the environment, the toolbox prompts you to install it. Once you install the software, you must restart the simulation.
Recommended Hardware Requirements
The table summarizes the recommended hardware requirements for Windows.
Graphics card (GPU)
|Video memory (RAM)||8 GB|
|Processor memory (RAM)|
The 3D visualization engine is not supported on Mac and Linux.
The Simulation 3D blocks do not support:
Multiple instances of the Simulation 3D Scene Configuration block
Multiple Unreal Engine instances in the same MATLAB® session
Rapid accelerator mode
Simulink Online™ simulation.
You cannot create or use
sim3d objects or functions in MATLAB
In addition, when using these blocks in a closed-loop simulation, all Simulation 3D blocks must be in the same subsystem.
