Maybe someday PTC will include a scraped data link from them or something but I guess they don't include a lot of default material properties for legal reasons. Like if you calculated the strength of the catwalk of the Hyatt Regency using their steel materials properties and then it wasn't exactly the same as the actual beam material used in construction then the dirty lawyers would be able to get them.
