Hi All

Im finding myself starting to use quite a few materials that are not in the SW std materials database.

They are mostly metals but often very specific alloys with particular conditioning. 254SMO, 410 Stainless Steel annealed, 4340 alloy steel annealed or hardened, etc.


So Im wondering if an expanded downloadable SW materials database exists anywhere.

Otherwise I find myself starting to build a database by copying and pasting the materials I already have, and renaming them as required.

The problem being I know, one day, I'll need the material specific properties to be exactly correct because Im doing a mass calc or FEA and something will bite me somewhere I don't want to be bitten


Thanks for your help
