Creating a New Material

Barry Shiong

In the feature manager tree there is a Material entry and if you right-click this you can choose to edit material. Select any material from the default list of materials. Then you press the "Create / Edit material" button. You cannot change the default materials but you can create your own database in the resulting dialog box. Once you have started a new database you can create a new material and edit the properties of this material and save them. When this part is used in an analysis package the physical properties of this customized material will be used.
