Custom Material Properties

Hi,

 

I have created a custom section using Robot 'Section Definition', but since it is a non-standard material, I also want to input custom material properties when i use the section in a frame analysis - is there an easy way to do this?

 

Thanks

Aaron

Create your own material in Tools\ Job Preferences \ Materials, then press Modification button. After filling all data under new material name please press Add.

It may happen that such material is not visible in project immediately. In such case please change layouts or restart ARSA.

I have done this procedure in the past and it worked fine. Now i cannot find them after i create them!! (they appear right after i create them in the "Job Preferences" window but after that i can't find them...), Please remind me any further trick, except the already mentioned ones (i restarted ARSA as well as i changed the layout) in order to be able to create a new material and to be stored in the material data...

O.k, please remind me the path of this folder...

I have saved (and i am using them often) some manually created materials defined in the past: if i clear now the cfgusr am i going to loose all the previously defined ones?

Thank you with for the path of these folders.

 

"I am loast what yuo have done" : I have manually created a long time ago some custom materials that i don't want to loose. The problem in which i cannot find what i am creating appeared just now that i am trying to create a new material. I don't have a problem with my previously defined ones -old ones- (i can "find them" and use them), i only have with what i am trying now.

If i will clear the cfgusr folder, will be everything  lost (even those ones that i have created in the past)?
