Is it possible to give a Solid an orthotropic direction?

Answer

A solid can be assigned with stiffness in all three directions (x, y, z). The material model for this is named Orthtropic Elastic 3D or Orthotropic Plastic 3D (picture 1).

The stiffness can be defined for E-Modulus and Shear Modulus of the Solid. The direction is ordered according the orientation of the Solid (picture 2).
