How can I create my own material?


The material library can be extended. If you add a new material, you can use it for all available models.

Click the "Create New Material" button in the library (see Figure).

The "New Material" dialog box appears. The parameters of the entry selected in the "Select Material to Select" list are preset. Now adjust the values. Thus, creating a new material is easier if a material with similar properties is selected first.

User-defined materials are saved in the Werkstoff_User.dbd file. It can be found in the master data folder of RFEM (C: \ ProgramData \ Dlubal \ RFEM 5.xx \ General Data). You can save the file and, if necessary, transfer it to another computer.
