What is SLX file?

Developed by MathWorks and it has a Zip format. It was introduced in 2012 as a file extension to replace the previous .MDL format file.
A .SLX file extension is a simulation model created by Simulink, which is a block diagram environment for multidomain simulation. SLX is a compressed package which conforms to the interoperability standard of Open Packaging Conventions (OPC). Compared to MDL, it reduces file sizes significantly, and it also solves problems with Korean and Chinese characters.
SLX stores a list of elements as well as associated values in a compressed XML format.
By default, it uses Unicode UTF-8 text encoding.

Programs that support SLX file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the SLX file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the SLX file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the SLX file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the SLX file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the SLX file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the SLX file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
