Hi 

Anyone know where to find/import alternative materialstyles

Hi,

 

I am not much clear what you wanted to do. What I know is: you can add a new material by Materials.Add and the material can set the RenderStyle which could configure some parameters from the params of the source material.

Sorry, I am not still not clear what you meant by "Import Material".

 

In UI, you can create material, open existing library. Did you meant the equivalent ability of API?

I guess its the same what I'm looking for, some pre defined materials with the right properties values of it standard, like AISI 304, ASTM A-36, ANSI XX, etc....

here I didnt find any site with files to import, so I had to create one by one, at least the more usuals here...

Hi,

 

What I can see is: you have to add the materials youself with the current API. I did not see a way to import a material. Sorry.
