Hi,
the format used for material database is called udb, a Moldflow specific file.

It is possible to have a personal databases.

In Help look in:
Materials and databases
Materials and databases > Material databases
Materials and databases > Material databases > Personal databases



What you can do:
- Contact the material supplier and ask for an udb-file for the material



- If you have measured data, raw data, of material you can contact
datafittingmoldflow@autodesk.com 
and get measured data fitted and an udb-file for analysis in return.
(material supplier might have measured raw data of the material?)

Autodesk Moldflow Plastics Labs information at:

Hope this helps.

Berndt
