Using a Snapshot in a Simulation

When using a snapshot in a simulation, the state information in the snapshot provides the initial conditions for the simulation, reconciled with any parameter or input value changes. You can specify a snapshot for a simulation from the Simulation Settings tab.

All of the snapshots from your simulation results are listed in Simulation Settings > Advanced Simulation > Use Snapshot and are given names of the form StoredResultName:SnapshotName (SnapshotTime).

To use a snapshot in a simulation:


Click the Simulation Settings tab ( ).


In the Advanced Simulation section, select the snapshot you want to use from the Use Snapshot list.


From the Main Toolbar, click Run Simulation ( ).
