Material library for simulation

Adam_MichaAdam_Micha Member Posts: 17 PRO
Hi,

To use the simulation functionality it is of course important to have the correct material properties. 
We can see that it is possible to add this manually now (previously it was only category, name and density that were supported) but is there any pre-defined material library that can be used or must all this information be entered manually for each material now?

    The material library was updated at the same time so all the info is there in the Onshape Standard Material library.

    Oh right. Is there any way to edit this? The old style material library was just a CSV and the new one lacks some of our common materials.

    EDIT: Now I found how to get to this. It was an issue of PEBKAC.
