SelectMaterial

Search and select material in SOLIDWORKS libraries using properties filters

Improve efficiency and quality in your choice of materials

SelectMaterial helps you to choose a material from SOLIDWORKS libraries and apply it to the active document.

This utility helps you to easily find a material, through filters on the library properties. When the material is applied to the part, the custom properties of the material automatically become custom properties of the part.

In addition, SelectMaterial allows you to customize hatching angle and scale directly at the 3D model level (feature that is no longer possible since SOLIDWORKS 2009).

With SOLIDWORKS alone

SOLIDWORKS allows you to create, modify and enrich the materials libraries incorporating your own expertise with custom properties and comments.

With SOLIDWORKS + myCADtools, including SelectMaterial

With SelectMaterial, you can optimise the choice of material and automatically enrich your models by integrating material data with custom properties. (Supplier, Treatments, Supply format, Packaging, etc.)
