Material for database


Material for database

Does someone have "A356-T6" material defined? I need this for my database. I think that we should put this type of thing on the site? I can contribute to the cause.

I got this off the exploder about 10 years ago, so I am going to share it back. I try not to use material files though because I have found that if anybody changes the unit system they don't change with it. Also, you never know what units the material files were made in and they are generally very confusing to me.

I thought with WF, PTC finally got around the units issue? This is a
pretty extensive list of material files. I've collected material files
over the years and have about 24!!! THOUGH, unless you are doing very
serious weight or FEA work, is there really much difference between a
generic "nylon" and a specific "nylon66_40gf"?
