When you have created a new category of materials within the Custom Materials, How I can export that new category to another computer? thank you very much
You can simply copy the .sldmat file to other computer and link the path under Tools > Options > System Options > File Locations
Dear Deepak Gupta:
thanks for the information. I have followed the sequence you wrote and I found the files (in the sldmaterials folder): solidworks materials.sldmat and SolidWorks DIN Materials.sldmat; but I can not find a Custom materials.sldmat file or similar.
Where may it be?
Do a search in windows explorer in the solidworks install folder.
Editing the material file (.sldmat) can be tricky. If you have never done it before my suggestion would be copy it to a different location first then to open it up in notepad. Just study it. You will see how it is tructured and see how the categories are callout.
Then you will see how to cut and past the material groupings and past them under a different category.
If you need help with this simply post your material files here and the material you want changed and I would be glad to do it for you. But take a look at it first and see if it is something you feel comfortable with.
Here is another link that might helps you as well.
