Menus & Buttons : Simulation > Info

Display your project profile which holds summary information about your model.


While not listing all the parameters and settings for your model, your project profile file does hold quite a lot of useful summary information. Get a quick run down of your project, or store this file with your other model output as an identity signature.

There is quite a lot more that could be usefully included in your project profile file and further development is included on the wish list.

Meanwhile these are the main points
  • Project profile files are generated automatically at the start of your simulation
  • Project profile files are generated on request by selecting the Simulation > Info menu or on pressing the Info button both on the Main Control Panel
  • Project profile files are named after your Site name defined in the Site Details window with the file extension .inf
  • Your project profile files are saved in your main output folder set via your Preferences
  • You will be prompted to overwrite existing Project Profile files if you do not have automatic deletion of files set in your Preferences
    If this prompt appears after starting a simulation then cancelling will cancel your simulation.
For more information please read the detailed notes on simulations and the simulation process.

An example of a project profile for a version of example 3 packaged with the modelling software is given below
