I am a student using SolidWorks Simulation for the first time and am having trouble. I have downloaded the software on my computer and everything works properly except one thing. I can apply a material in the "Modeling" portion of Solidworks and all material properties show up. Unfortunately, it doesnt not carry over into the "Simulation" portion. Then, even if i manually go in and try to apply it again, it simply doesn't let me. The appropriate materials box shows up, and the material properties are all defined, however when I click "Apply" nothing happens. This occurs for files I have created as well as the SolidWorks Simularion Tutorials which are given. I can apply forces and fixtures appropriately, however I can not simulate because it will not let me select the material.
The most frustrating thing, is that I can use it on a friends computer and everything works properly. I follow the same steps on both computers and yet mine will not work.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program and still no success. Any ideas?
