would like help to choose the appropriate material for my parts.
To be able to run stress analysis on an assembly, you need to have SolidWorks Premium with the Simulation add-in active.
As for materials to use, that depends on what it is you're making and what you expect it to do.
thanks for the fast respond!
i'm designing a tent peg that screwed to the ground instead of hammerd, and i want it to be strong enough but still lightweight.
i thought about using a kind of aluminum alloy i just dont know wich one. do you have any advise?
It depends on what the manufacturing process is
Machined (probably not) 6061
Formed, maybe 5052
Extruded, maybe 6105
