If you would like to generate / build model files for our existing database tables, Open the terminal or command prompt and install the following package,

​composer require "laracademy/generators" --dev

Once you have completed the above step, just run below PHP command inside your project root directory:

php artisan generate:modelfromtable --schema="ENTER_YOUR_DATABASE_NAME"

Another option is,

Open the generated model file located in the app directory and specify the table name and fillable fields of the database table. For example

namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class ModelName extends Model
    protected $table = 'db_table_name';

    protected $fillable = [
        // add more fillable fields here
