Hi Gabriela,

Are you looking to modify a MESA simulation that you’ve already run?
If so, you can change the initial mass as documented here:

Or are you looking to to run your first simulation?
You can find examples of pre main sequence and ZAMS in the test suite as documented here:

If you have a specific question, you can find information about troubleshooting here:

Is it possible to use a model of a star like the Sun until ZAMS to calculate the evolution of a star with a different mass starting in the ZAMS?
Thank you so much.
