When parametric runs are simulated a new .inp file is generated in the
project folder.  Typically it will look like "Project Name - Baseline
Design.inp" for the base file, then each subsequent parametric run will
have a .inp file created with the name "Project Name - X.inp" where X is
whatever number/combination of 3 letters you've named your runs.  Each
of the .inp's is a modified version of your base file .inp with the
parameters you defined in your parametric run file (.prd).

Good morning,


I created parametric runs to run the building rotations.  Because I need
to set the baseline azimuth to -21, I created two global parameters:


1.       ROTATION DEG (set to 90, 180, and 270)

2.       AZIMUTH DEFAULT (set to -21)


Then I defined AZIMUTH to be parameter("ROTATION
DEG")+parameter("AZIMUTH DEFAULT").


I would like to verify that the runs have the correct azimuths.  Is
there a way to confirm this in the results or the .inp file?

Thank you,
