'My Material' File Transfer to CFD 2013

Is there a way to import to CFD 2013 my custom materials from CFD 2012?  I would really like to not have to re-create all of those materials.

Please use plain text.

Yes, open up the Material Editor from the interface, go to Databases and import your old one.

What would the 'My Material' database file from 2012 be named?  It would be in my Autodesk folder in Program Files, correct?

 

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2012

Yes, it could have been saved in a different place though. It will be an mdb file.

The file location was not in Program Files for me.  It had been saved to the following directory as mymaterials.cfdmdb:

 

C:\Documents and Settings\pwilkins\AppData\Local\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2012

 

The import worked perfectly.  Thanks for your help Jon.
