Assigning materials and material properties to the parts of your simulation can be done quickly through the Utility menu. Begin by creating materials using the Material macro. Then set up the flow stress data for the material with the Flow Stress macro. Finally, apply the material to a specific component of the simulation with the Comps macro.
