Manual  Key "Material"

If this key is set, the material should be applied with all physical properties.

The material name must be identical to one of the names in the material list (iProperties -> Physical tab -> Material)

Per default the value of the key Material(is3dpart) is a complex vbs expression. It may be adjusted as desired.



The default is a combination with material mapping.

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

[Note] Note

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. Details can be found under Section 2.2.5, “Material mapping ”.

The determined name is then mapped along with the material table under block [MatMap] to the CAD system material names. The material name must be identical to one of the names defined in the library given under the key MaterialDirectories.

Please absolutely also regard the information concerning material mapping (block [MatMap]).
