Materials and Multibody Parts

You can assign different materials to individual bodies in a multibody part. The material assignments are used by mass properties, drawing section views, and SolidWorks Simulation.

In the FeatureManager design tree, in the Solid Bodies folder, right-click a body and click Material. To affect several bodies, select them before right-clicking.

For more information, see SolidWorks Help: Materials and Multibody Parts.
