Usage

The material editor can currently be accessed by either:

  1. Workbench Arch.svg Arch Workbench:
    • The Arch SetMaterial.svg Material button.
    • The menu Arch → Material tools → Arch SetMaterial.svg Material entry.
  2. Workbench FEM.svg FEM Workbench:
    • The FEM MaterialEditor.svg Material editor button.
    • The menu Model → Materials → FEM MaterialEditor.svg Material editor entry.

Options

  • Browser button: Opens the contents of the URL property in a browser
  • Material card: Allows to choose a preset to fill in the fields
  • Open: Opens a .FCMat file
  • Save as: Saves the contents of the editor as a new .FCMat file
  • Preview: Not implemented yet
  • Properties editor: Allows to edit the contents of the material properties
  • Add property: Allows to add a new custom property
  • Delete property: Deletes a selected property. Only custom properties can be deleted

Note:

  • The OK and Cancel buttons have the same effect when the Material editor is not used to edit directly the material property of an existing object.
