Use the Properties pane in order to add additional information to your model/components. This information can be accessible afterwards by other tools (e.g. pictures can be used in Simcenter Webapp Server to have a preview image of the model) or can be used to give additional information to the final consumers of the model.


The Properties function allows you to attach various types of information to a model or to individual components within that model. This can be, for example, useful information about the model (or component) such as a creation date or a specifications file, or it could be an image, simple text, a number.

The Properties pane is hidden by default, you can activate it from Edit > Show / Hide > Model Properties menu:
