Accessing material description rather than name?

Question asked by Gordon Rigg on Oct 23, 2020

I set the material custom property to ""SW-Material"

The text generated by "SW material" fills the material box on my drawing of the part.

"SW material" is the name of the material in the materials database.

 

However now I have the analysis plug in I made variations of my materials, for example I have:

Full Hard Beryllium Copper (CW101C/Alloy 25/C17200) with hardness condition Hv 215 – 270.

and one called:

Full Hard Beryllium Copper (CW101C/Alloy 25/C17200) with hardness condition Hv 215 – 270 corrected E.

 

I would like to use the description field in the material database to appear on my part drawing not the material name.

 

So am asking if there is some text code I can use rather than "SW Material" to access the description field from the material database?
