Set Color and Material - New FeatureScript

Hello everyone,

I would like to share a featureScript of mine which I think could be useful for you.

You can make a copy of this document and customize the table with the materials you use for your parts.
The advantage in using this feature instead of the Onshape material list is, that all parts will have the same color in your documents.
Also you can extend the feature to set custom properties!

Here is a list of custom properties I use:
- German material name
- English material name
- German surface name
- English surface name

This helps me to fill my BOMs and part properties.

PS.: Make sure to place the feature at the end of the feature list. That the way the mass is calculated correctly.
