Hello all, I am working on a piece of code to better identify bodies or components without a material assigned since the stand solidworks dialog is absolutely ZERO help and I waste large amounts of time trying to find the issue in assemblies with >600 parts. The problem is that when I finally get to parsing out the material, it gives User Defined as the name regardless of the material (whether it be defined or not), a category of Iron, a count of 9, and no description. I'm wondering if anyone has done something like this or if this is ultimately why SW doesn't identify components that are missing materials.
