Does anybody know, how to add extra steel material definitions with their properties to the built in solidworks library ?
Thanks for your help.
You add them to the Custom Materials library, not in Solidworks Materials. The simplest way is to right click a similar material in the SW library, and click Copy, then right click and paste it into your Custom library and edit it as required.
Thanks Denzil for your reply, but actually I am looking for ready defined material list and not to create & to edit them one by one.

There are some materials I added directly to the library file in SW, I wanted to avoid going to another 'screen' to select them and they would not be in order anyway. I downloaded this material library from here on the forums and have the original zip file. I have loaded a few of them but I can not vouch for their accuracy in simulations. I did paste these directly into the existing SW library file but I wouldn't recommend the process for just anyone.
I was looking to add to my Lib material as well, But I am also looking gasket material Cork.. dose anyone know where I can go to get list of material that I can add to library material?
