Hi,

 

Is there any way to get tabulated data for all of the materials in the Robot database?  I searched in the program files / Robot 2013 but can't find it easily.  

 

Thanks,

Tony

hahah ok thanks :smileyhappy:

 

So, without API, if a colleague wants to print a list of material properties for example - all concrete types - then he would have to draw many bars, then assign each one a material?  Then use the table you describe?

 

not a atext file somewhere here:

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2013

XML file = kind of text file, material databases names  : rmat*.xml

 

 

"c:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Structural\Common Data\2013\Data\Mate" 

--------------------------------

user section databases, material databases, etc.

 

Win 7 32- or 64-bit RSAPro:

API, API, API...

Gift for You attached - whole database to Excel.

 

If you want only concrete materials  :

 

replace

 

Set RNA = RobApp.Project.Preferences.Materials.GetAll

by

 

Set RNA = RobApp.Project.Preferences.Materials.Get(I_MT_CONCRETE)
