Manual Key "Material" - Materialmapping

Per default the material information is taken from the MATMAP block. Also see keys "poolpath", "filename", "MaterialDBFile" and block "MatMap".

Per default this is a complex vbs expression. It may be adjusted as desired.


Alternative example for the vbs expression:


Definition, where the material information is from.

May be combined with material mapping (internal PARTsolutions material name : CAD-System material name).

Material mapping is used in order to map the internal PARTsolutions material name onto the CAD system material name.

[Hinweis] Hinweis

The untranslated name of the material is transferred; in other words the same one for all languages.

Per default the material name is taken from the CNS classification. (Where the CNS classification gets the material name from is set under

C:\ProgramData\cadenas\partsolutions\setup -> configuration file partsol.cfg -> Block VARTOCLASSMAPPING. Per default the table column "MAT_NAME" is set.)

The determined name is then mapped along with the material table under block MatMap to the CAD system material names.

The following shows the [MatMap] block relevant for material mapping:

Aluminum-6061-AHC=6061 Legierung
ABS Plastic=ABS PC
Gold=Reines Gold
Lead=Reines Blei
Silver=Reines Silber
