Export a Monolix project

Export a Monolix project to PKanalix, Simulx and Sycomore

MonolixSuite applications are interconnected and projects can be exported/imported between different applications. This interconnection is guaranteed by using the same model syntax (mlxtran language) and the same dataset format. You can export a Monolix project to PKanalix or Simulx in one click directly from the interface.

To export a project click EXPORT PROJECT TO in the top menu “Export”:

The export pop-up window will appear where you can choose:

  • to which application you want to export your current project: PKanalix, Simulx or Sycomore (starting from the 2024 version)
  • which dataset you want to use in the export (PKanalix and Simulx only): original dataset, vpc dataset (if VPC plot has been generated), individual fits dataset (if individual fits plot has been generated)


By default, Monolix will copy all files, e.g. dataset and model, next to the new PKanalix/Simulx project. To keep current location of these files, switch the toggle “Generated files next to project” off.

It is now feasible to export additional covariates to Simulx that were not initially included in the individual model (starting from version 2024R1). In the export configurations window a dedicated “Covariates” section appears. This section lists the covariates that are already incorporated in the model, and underneath, additional covariates can be selected from an available drop-down menu titeld “Other exported covariates”.

To export a Monolix project click the “EXPORT” button at the bottom. PKanalix/Simulx/Sycomore will open automatically with a predefined project called “untitled”. You can save this project, edit and run. For more information about exported elements, see:

When exporting to Sycomore, a new Sycomore project will be created that contains only the current Monolix project. To add additional Monolix projects to the Sycomore project, the following instructions can be followed.

Share a Monolix project

The 2024 version of MonolixSuite introduces a highly convenient method for sharing projects. Simply click on “Share Project” in the export menu, and a zip folder is generated containing all the required files to re-open the project (dataset, model if not from library, mlxtran file, result folder). By default, the suggested location for the zipped shared project matches that of the original, but this can be easily modified to any other location on the computer.

The functionality of this feature remains consistent across all software within the MonolixSuite.
