Is it possible to define material for all parts in assembly at once?

Is it possible to define material for all parts in assembly at once, without opening each part and define material for it?

Re: Is it possible to define material for all parts in assembly at once?

No. Since parts are typically created one at a time, that's when the material should be applied. In the case of imports I expect a template can be used, but would have to research to be sure.

Other than that, create a Mapkey that assigns the material and work through the assembly by opening and running the mapkey. If it takes more than 15 seconds per part I would be surprised.

Only if you want to define the same material to all assembly

Re: Is it possible to define material for all parts in assembly at once?

yes exactly and how can i do this???

Re: Is it possible to define material for all parts in assembly at once?

As David mentioned, it is not possible to assign material to components at assembly, you may try using mapkey.

A solution for this has been implemented in Creo 7.0. Please refer to TS Article CS105095 for steps and a GIF animation demonstration.
