B-SIM V2.5 Reference - Blow molding simulation
B-SIM Project is the basic document used in B-SIM to set up and run a simulation. The main purpose of this document type is to browse for all the files needed to run a simulation and to enable the specification of additional data like the project number and comments.
Project creation / edit

Command Project / Export project files enables to export all project files for data exchange. See more information in Project export.
Using Solver bar it is also possible to pause and stop the running solution, and to open the project for post-processing. Once a project is solved, a HTML report is automatically generated. The report can be opened from post-processing by clicking on Open report file button.
Commands in the sub-menu Project (Start solve, Pause solve, Cancel solve, Open for post-processing) can be used instead of shortcuts on Solver bar.
B-SIM Solver view
Using Solver bar it is possible to run the solution of the project, pause and stop the running solution, and to open the project for post-processing. Commands in the submenu Project (Start solve, Pause solve, Cancel solve, Open for post-processing) can be used instead of shortcuts on Solver bar.
When the solver is started, the following picture appears:
Solver info bar is displayed at the bottom of the project window with information about the solution progress.
During the solver run, the deforming parison / preform with tools is displayed and the following commands are accessible enabling to:
Once the project is solved, open the solved project for post-processing (use command Project / Open for post-processing)
