I need to create a new material, but I can't figure out how to add or
delete from the material properties. For example, how do I add yield
strength to the material properties and how do I remove certain
properties for which I don't have any data?
Thanks in advance...
The first thing that you have to do is either create a new materials
file or copy the original SW materials file (materials.sldmat) to a safe
place and rename the original one. This file is by default located in
the "solidworks/lang/english/sldmaterials" (for english install). Then
you can modify the material that is in the "new" file. Solidworks WILL
NOT let you modify any of the materials or add new ones in its default
And as Keith said, you can get a lot of info on materials from MATWEB.com
