Get material from old material database.

I'm redesigning a product which relies on being made whith quite a specific material made by Nova Innovene.

In the 2014 release of Moldflow the material database has been changed to exclude Nova Innovene materials (they are not producing anymore, but we've got tons of the material at the company).

 

Is there a way to get this bit of the old Moldflow database imported in the new one? (biggest problem being I don't have this bit of database in my possession).

I do have some specifications about the material, but not even close to the amount of data mentioned in the material database. I'm afraid that just altering a sort of simalar material with just the scraps of data I do have will create a non existant material.

 

In this link you'll see the message about deleting Nova Inoovene from the databases...

Please help?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I had a look in material database of 2013 release.

 

Nova Innovene has one material with trade name: 546N

 

Searching on the same trade name in 2014 release it shows:

546N for manufacturer Styrolution

 

Material ID and Grade Code are the same in 2013 and 2014 release, so this seems to be same material with a change of manufacturer.

 

Please, double-check that this is the requested material for 2014 release.

 

Regards,

Berndt

Thanks for the quick reply!

Alas it's not the same material, I was kinda fearing of that, but since I could not see what was deleted I held my hopes up...
 
I added the material data I have. I sencerily hope you could help me in some kind of way?
The material I use has been produced in '02 so it's going quite some way back...
 
If you compare the two datasheets you'll even see that they differ somewhat. Ik think the second one is leading since that's wat the manufacturer supplied. It's rather consise though

Hi,
I looked back a couple of releases but could not find the material Ineos Nova S-3207.
Not sure if it has been in official material database.

Recommed you to contact our plastics lab at:
datafittingmoldflow@autodesk.com
to see if this material is available at all.
If, then an udb-file can be returned to use for analysis.

Autodesk Moldflow Plastics Labs information at:
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/item?id=13151393&siteID=123112&linkID=13030537 

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Berndt
