Is simulation amazing?

I have not really dug into it yet thinking it was going to be a complicated thing that I didn't have time for ATM.  Just watching an overview video on it and I am amazed at how apparently non labor intensive it is to use.  Hoping it has a way to simulate fatigue?

    It does not - only linear static at the moment, but more will be added over time.

    None the less, it looks amazing and I will begin dabbling in it today.

    The error message seems helpful but seriously lacking is helpful information that must be just under the skin waiting to be exposed.  I mean, the system just has to know which part is missing material properties right?  Why not let us know as well in the message?  https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/20542/more-simulation-error-info#latest

    True - quickest way right now is to add material as a column in the BOM.

    @NeilCooke
    Thanks.  That definitely makes it easier!

    And of course, double clicking the BOM cell lets you change the material of the part from the assembly (if it is a workspace part).
