We develop a practical forward fitting inversion method based on the SIMPLEX algorithm with shaking, which allows the derivation of the magnetic field and other parameters along a solar flaring loop using microwave imaging spectroscopy of gyrosynchrotron emission. To comprehensively test this method we have developed a powerful tool for 3D direct modeling of radio emission from solar flares - '3D GS Simulator', which can also be used for many other applications of the flare modeling. In this talk I am going to present the '3D GS Simulator' and its computation and visualization capabilities and also to illustrate the forward fitting inversion method using a model loop, created by the '3D GS Simulator', with spatially varying magnetic field, filled with uniform ambient density and an evenly distributed fast electron population with an isotropic, power-law energy distribution.
