So that SIMUL8 can provide results graphs that are directly comparable results information is normally stored every 5 (default) simulated minutes for all simulation objects where graphing of results is relevant.
Change the Results Synchronization Interval in the File tab in Preferences. With simulations that run over a long time period you may want to increase this time interval (to save memory).
In very detailed simulation you may decide to reduce this interval to increase accuracy.
For complete accuracy switch to “plot every result” in the individual results dialogs.
The time graph data is used to calculate some averages reported in the results dialogs so the accuracy of the graphing will affect the accuracy of averages.
