Materials

The material database provides access to thousands of materials suitable for plastic injection molding.

The material database includes polymer, mold (mostly metals), and coolant materials.

Assign materials as follows:
  • Polymer materials for Cavity domains.
  • Polymer or metal materials for Insert domains.
  • Mold materials for Mold domains.
  • Coolant materials for Cooling Channel domains.

The Default Database contains materials that are read-only. You create and store custom materials in the User-defined Database.

First mesh a domain before you assign a material.
