I have a part (Retaining Ring) with about 75 or so configurations; different sizes or same size different material. The problem I keep seeing is every time I open up this part and switch between configurations the material changes on that configuration, sometimes to material that was on the previous configuration that I viewed or simply the opposite (from STL to SSTL). In this part I use either 15-7 Mo SSTL or 1060 STL, so it only switches to either one of these material.
We have many other parts with whole lot of configurations and different materials and I have been seeing that for a while now.
If you insert the part into an assembly and select the configuration you need from the list and never open the part it works great, but if there is a need to modify one of the configurations for some reason, that's when the mess begins.
Has anyone else seen this before or knows what the problem is?
I will greatly appreciate any help.
