Create and show a transmitter site.

tx = txsite('Name','MathWorks Apple Hill',...
       'Latitude',42.3001, ...

Hide the transmitter site.


Import and view an STL file. The file models a small conference room with one table and four chairs.

viewer = siteviewer('SceneModel','conferenceroom.stl');

Create a transmitter site near the upper corner of the room and a receiver site above the table. Specify the position using Cartesian coordinates in meters. Then, visualize the sites.

tx = txsite('cartesian', ...
    'AntennaPosition',[-1.46; -1.42; 2.1]);
rx = rxsite('cartesian', ...
    'AntennaPosition',[0.3; 0.3; 0.85]);


Pan by left-clicking, zoom by right-clicking or by using the scroll wheel, and rotate the visualization by clicking the middle button and dragging or by pressing Ctrl and left-clicking and dragging.

Hide the sites.
