MATLAB: Save the Simulink model without saving model workspace

model workspacesimulink

I want to save the Simulink model "model1.slx" itself, not saving "model1.slx" within a new model. I don't want its model workspace saved, either. Am I doing right with the syntax below, by just leaving the newsys name blank [ ] ?
My Matlab version is 2020a.
save_system('model1',[],'SaveModelWorkspace',false)

  • The syntax you are using for the "save_system" command is correct for the functionality you are trying to achieve.
    save_system('model1',[],'SaveModelWorkspace',false)
    The effect of name-value pair arguments used in above command is explained below:
    1. Using ('model1',[ ]) as first name-value pair argument, you are opting to save the model named as “model1” to the same name.
    2. Using ('SaveModelWorkspace',false) as second name-value pair argument, you are choosing not to save the model workspace.
    You can refer the documentation about saving the model to same name and saveModelWorkspace input argument to the save_system function.
