They are simple text files.

Rename an existing one and edit it for your own names and parameters.

There is also an icon to create a new one from within Creo, but it is very generic.

Hello

You have that which is compatible with Creo.

Kind regards.

Create a new material file with dummy data and then edit it in a simple text editor. See what each set of lines says and does and then add the properties for your materials.

Here is the start part default file we use.

ND_RelParSet_K01 = {

 

Name = START_MATERIAL

 

PARAMETERS =

{

  Name = PTC_MATERIAL_DESCRIPTION

  Type = String

  Default = 'PDM Number, Description 1

Description 2

Description 3'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = TEMPERATURE

  Type = Real

  Default = 0.000000e+00 F

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = PTC_INITIAL_BEND_Y_FACTOR

  Type = Real

  Default = 5.000000e-01

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = PTC_BEND_TABLE

  Type = String

  Default = ''

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = PTC_MATERIAL_TYPE

  Type = Integer

  Default = 9

  Access = Locked

},

{

  Name = PTC_FAILURE_CRITERION_TYPE

  Type = String

  Default = 'NONE'

  Access = Locked

},

{

  Name = PTC_FATIGUE_TYPE

  Type = String

  Default = 'NONE'

  Access = Locked

},

{

  Name = PTC_MASS_DENSITY

  Type = Real

  Default = 9.900000e+01 lbm/in^3

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = PDM_NUMBER

  Type = String

  Default = 'PROE_SETUP'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = PDM_NAME

  Type = String

  Default = 'Start Material Name'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = DESCRIPTION1_U

  Type = String

  Default = 'PDM Number, Description 1'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = DESCRIPTION2_U

  Type = String

  Default = 'Start Material Description 2'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = DESCRIPTION3_U

  Type = String

  Default = 'Start Material Description 2'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = DATA_SOURCE

  Type = String

  Default = 'Source for material properties'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = VERSION

  Type = String

  Default = 'Version of material file'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = CATEGORY

  Type = String

  Default = 'Material category type'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = COMMENT1

  Type = String

  Default = 'Material used for setup of start parts.'

  Access = Full

},

{

  Name = COMMENT2

  Type = String

  Default = 'Any other comments about material.'

  Access = Full

}

Hello Ben,

I have created the new material files in our library. And to bring the assigned material in to the parameter,

I have used

* MATERIAL=material_param("PTC_MATERIAL_DESCRIPTION")
In the relation tab. Now my problem is
- When i fill this relation content before assigning the material it will show the below error.
Error.JPG
But when i fill this after assigning the material, it will not shown any errors.
I have to save this relation in "start file" itself. So need to type before assigning the material.
Kindly suggest your views.

Assign a material, paste in the relation, delete the material. You will still get the error message and a error in the context dialog box that says "WARNING: Some constraint relations are no longer satisfied in YourPART." but it will allow you to save the start part and perform regeneration.
