I cant find Magnesium Alloy in the material lists for solidworks 2016
is it updated and i missed it?
I know most would suggest against using the following link but the guy (Matthew Lorono) who runs this is a frequent contributor here. The link references a custom material file that I'm sure others will agree that is one to have in your tools.
Below is some text from the page:

Ctopher’s Custom Materials Database allows you to add many materials to SOLIDWORKS which are not currently included as part of the default installation. Materials range from ceramics, metal alloys, plastics, crystals, and even magnets. Current version was created using SOLIDWORKS 2016.

Hi Narveen K.
I have it in SW2016 SP3
You just need to look under "Other Alloys"
