The Simulation - General page of the Preferences dialog


The Simulation – General page of the Preferences dialog is used to define the default model path for circuit simulation models. Altium Designer will search the current project's folder first, then search the desired location for referenced simulation models.


The Simulation – General page is part of the main Preferences dialog (DXP » Preferences) and is accessed by clicking General under the Simulation folder in the left pane of the dialog.



  • Model Path - click the folder icon to open Browse For Folder dialog to search for and select the target folder that contains the simulation models.
