I need concrete for material and can not find it as a selection in the material drop down. Does anyone have this that they could share? Currently running SW2018 SP4.
Here's the one that was set up with our custom materials before my time. I don't know much about it. It also contains one for asphalt, and maybe one or two others. The one for asphalt is probably just for appearance. I wouldn't trust any of the other properties. As far as that goes, the concrete material is pretty close to correct, but as someone else mentioned concrete can vary widely, but you should be able to edit it to suit your needs.
Edit: I wasn't able to attach it. I got a message that .sldmat files can't be posted. Here are some screenshots that should help if you want to try setting up your own. Again, I accept no responsibility for their accuracy. It was set up here by someone that long ago moved on to another job.
Concrete is a wide array of types...
We get our info from: Online Materials Information Resource - MatWeb , quick search for Concrete, returns 65 options..
Glenn Schroeder deals with concrete on a daily basis. Maybe he will have some insight.
Wayne... (using the search)..there has been a lot of discussion.. but not many sldmat files posted?
...someone at grabcad posted data... 3D CAD Model Collection | GrabCAD Community Library
Did you attach the file to this message. I can not find it.
I sent you a message. Please look at it. Thanks
You could trick it by zipping the file before posting it...Or, you could change the extension to sldprt. Then anyone downloading it could change the extension back.
..yeah, there is this guy who wrote about it here... but, I'd use RAR... much better.
How can I attach a file to a forum post?
Are you going to be modeling rebar too? If yes, I highly recommend saving round profile sketches as .sldlfp files and using them to create the rebar as weldments. The same method works well for cable, wire, etc also.
Thank You Glenn
The attached "Solid Round" is a configured weldment profile and I zipped the Rebar folder containing the individual rebar sldflps I've used in the past.
