Installation and Quick Start
If you have not yet installed version
R2017a of the toolbox, follow
steps #1 thru #4. If you have already installed version
are upgrading to a new license (e.g., a full license instead of a trial
license), only step #4 is needed.
- DOWNLOAD THE TOOLBOX. This is the
.mltbxfile. Choose a directory for the file. For example, on a Windows machine one might choose
C:\myHomeDirectory\matlab\3rd_party\davinci_draw\R2017a. On a Unix machine one might choose
- UNINSTALL PREVIOUS VERSION. This will help avoid name conflicts. Select "Manage Add-Ons" in Matlab to uninstall any previous versions of DaVinci Draw.
- INSTALL THE TOOLBOX. In Matlab, switch to the directory with
.mltbxfile. (One way is to click the Browse for folder icon on the Matlab GUI and surf to the appropriate directory. Another way is to use the Matlab
cdcommand on the Matlab command line.) The
.mltbxfile should appear in Matlab's Current Folder browser. Double-click on the
.mltbxfile. Then click "Install". Matlab will extract the toolbox files, adjust your Matlab path, and integrate the DaVinci Draw toolbox documentation with the main Matlab documentation.
- INSTALL THE LICENSE FILE. Download from our website your license file, named
davinci_license.txt, and place the file somewhere on your Matlab path. One possibility is to place
davinci_license.txtin the same directory you placed the
.mltbxfile, and add this directory to the Matlab path. (One way to adjust the Matlab path is to click the Set Path button on the Home tab of the Matlab GUI.)
Generate a Drawing
davinci( 'arrow', 'X', [0 10], 'Y', [0 0] ); % Draw an arrow. daspect( [1 1 1] ) % Set the aspect ratio at 1:1.
More examples are on the help pages for the individual DaVinci shapes.
Go to the main Matlab documentation window, and look under "Supplemental Software".
Alternatively, go to
davinci-draw.com where all the documentation is
