Why don't create a fantastic material library like other CAD software with more than 20 defaut material.
Today each customer create or recreate there own material in mtl... but I'm sure that most of the standard materials could be create with an Hatch include and a realist color associate. SW do that perfectly by default so why not PTC...
These material library could be install and activate or not like PTC have done with a Graphic library few years ago.
I'm sure it could be possible to get some PTC direct customer's material library ....graphics library .... Hatch Library ...Mapkeys.. then merge it in a beautiful User Interface Windows.... That will be my dream and for a lot of customers.
A way to have global edition of all material values ...Density... Young modulus .... like Excel should be perfect. We have devellop a spreedsheet who do the job perfectly in my company.
Another idea is a way to sort by physical and structural caracteristics in the Material Attribution Windows. It could be usefull for designers of FEM analysts
A Hatch modification in all XSection by changing a material or modify the Hatch pitch ideally should change in all views in the Drawing.
