Model Builder Visual Tutorials
The following tutorials are excerpts from the Model Builder Visual Basic Training Manual. They are presented in downloadable PDF format. If you don't already have a free PDF reader, you can download one for free from Adobe's website:
Creating a Basic Model in MBV
This will walk the user through creating a basic MBV model, demonstrating how to use the most common objects in MBV. The model will be built in 4 blocks, or tutorials, which will build upon each other by adding new components and illustrating new concepts and tools.

MBV ICD Tool Tutorial
The Interface Control Definition (ICD) tool allows a host computer and an MBV model to share information via ethernet UDP packets by labeling and standardizing the information contained in the UDP packet. In other words, the ICD tool defines the XML packet layout. When creating an ICD, the user creates the packets that makeup the ICD and the members that makeup the packets. Note that this is an excerpt from the "Creating a Basic Model in MBV" (Rev. B) tutorial above.

Creating a Radio Model in MBV
The two radio and two operator tutorial presented here is intended to show the user how a simple communications model is constructed. It will demonstrate the basic principles and main components upon which more complex communications models are developed. Note that this is an excerpt from the "Creating a Basic Model in MBV" (Rev. B) tutorial above.

Advanced Radio Modeling in MBV
Radio Models (also referred to as Comms Models) are the largest, most complex, and most used models in MBV. This lesson contains several specifically-focused radio tutorials to demonstrate some of the properties of real radios and MBV simulated radios. It will also focus on the components most often used in comms models and the radio environment.
Model Conversion Tutorial
This model tutorial builds on the previous Radio Tutorial, and shows the user how to convert the 2-operator, 2-radio MBV model to an 8-operator, 4-radio model. Note that this is an excerpt from the "Creating a Basic Model in MBV" (Rev. B) tutorial above.
