Description

The Material Editor allows you to edit and save the information contained in a FreeCAD material. Currently such materials are used by the FEM and Arch workbenches.

How to use

The material editor can currently be accessed by:

  • Arch Workbench:
  • FEM Workbench:
    • The menu Models → Material → Material editor
    • The icon Material editor
  • Via python:

Scripting

import MaterialEditor
MaterialEditor.openEditor()

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.
