You can now easily convert any folder containing design files into a Simulink® Project by using the Folder to Project template in the Simulink start page. The process adds all the files from a selected folder to a Simulink Project and guides you to set up the paths and startup files. When you open your project next time, it will automatically put the folders you need on the path and run any setup operations to configure your environment.
This simple, quick process sets up your project and introduces you to Simulink Project features so that you can more effectively manage your design files, collaborate with your team, automate repetitive tasks, and integrate with source control and configuration management tools.
