So far I was not able to find how to get the Python API to choose an input simulation, after choosing to continue a previous simulation. What I have is a thermal simulation called "Heating 0", corresponding to the first minute of an experiment. The next simulation is "Heating 1", which I continue as follows:
thermal_initial_global.InitializationOptions = thermal_initial_global.InitializationOptions.enum.ContinueSimulation
So far, so good. But if I want to do "Heating 2" based on "Heating 1", I am stuck. Everything I have tried yields a continuation of "Heating 0", because I can not choose an Input Simulation. I have searched for an appropriate function in the objects "InputSimulation" and "InputSimulationProp" using dir(), but so far without success.
