A Material is used by Sections, Property 2Ds and Property 3Ds. It is only possible to work with elastic isotropic material types. A Material can either be created as a Standard Material from design code and grade using the Create Material component, or as a custom material using the Create Custom Material component.

Use the Get Model Materials to get all materials in a Model and then use Edit Material in combination with Material Properties to get information about material properties.
