Pre-processing and post-processing tools are displayed on panels located at the bottom of the application.

Each panel can be used to perform specific tasks. Panels with multiple functions have subpanels, which can be accessed by clicking the radio buttons on the left side of the panel.

Clicking return in a panel applies the changes you have made to the model while using the panel.

  • Display a brief description of the panel in the status bar by clicking and holding the left mouse button while the cursor is over the panel name.
  • Quickly cycle through the different fields and buttons in a panel by pressing the middle mouse button.
