i wish to add some concrete and brick and blockwork to the materials lists ,is it possible to do this and how is it done ?
i have autocad as a source but would they work in SW?
Hei'ya Joe, you can add custom materials,
RMB click on the material in the feature tree,
and choose edit material
select a material from those offered
(best one for close to start with),
when the material is highlighted Ctrl+C
to copy the starting file
RMB click on Custom Materials
(at the bottom of list usually)
insert New Category, name ( eg MyMatl/Brickwork) and paste
the copied file in the new category
RMB and rename the custom material- eg Red Brick
set the properties, appearance etc.options as required and apply
not sure about using ext.data files, sorry
but this will give you a start
hope this helps- have a good'n kelef
