Short Instructions

The following list is simply a sequence of instructions for performing a simple thermal simulation. It is set to match the sequence described in the First Tutorial. It will be extended at a later date to include other aspects. It is a useful checklist and worthwhile repeating the instructions until you become familiar. Then you will have a sound base to extend your knowledge.

You can also use this sequence to learn the various toolbars: many of the commands can be executed more quickly through use of these shortcuts.
