Just installed SW2005 SP0 on my home machine. Been using SW on a daily basis since SW98. I just made a new part and the material was aluminum in my template. I tried to change the density and it wouldn't let me. So I removed the material. Now it is: "Material . I then when into the "mass properties" tool and hit options and hit the "use custom settings" radio box and changed the density to .09. Then hit OK. But it did not change the density, it set itself to .0361273 lb/in^3 (which is the density of water.) OK, maybe its a bug, so I went into the "Documents properties" > "Materials properties" and changed the density there and hit ok. Again the same results - it did not change the density. Of the hundreds of parts I created until SW2005 that's they way you change and set the density. Why oh why did they make SW2005 so hard to change the density???? Or is this a bug? I did look in the help and it stated to change the density as I did.
Does anyone know what's going on?
BTW, I did make a new material and set the density there and it worked. BUT, I wanted to tweak the density and I had to wade through the material properties menus to change it. Instead of a few clicks in SW2004 and before, its a bunch of clicks to change the density.
