There are a few potential problems with the MATLAB session shown above:
  1. Did you create the XML file using the SolidWorks Plugin for Simscape Multibody?
  2. mech_import() is for First Generation Technology, smimport() is for Second Generation technology. Try smimport('valve.xml').
  3. You need to pass the name of the XML file to the function as an input argument.
