If you have written all items needed for the simulation, please click the "OK" button.
Then, the project file for the SPM simulator is automatically generated in a new window.
If you click the button put at the top of the window, you can download a new generated project file as "test_tmp.pro".
In the above screen for editing the project file, for the sake of simplicity, we let you not rotate the tip and the sample in the three-dimensional space.
If you want to rotate the tip and the sample in the three-dimensional space, please launch the SPM simulator and let it import the project file and set angles of the three-dimensional rotation through the GUI.
