In the cross-section library, I get an error message saying that the material is not assigned to a cross-section. What should I do?


The error message shown in Figure 01 is displayed if no material has been defined for the cross-section.

Figure 01 - Error Message

In this case, it is necessary to assign the material to the cross-section. To select a material from the material library, open the library by clicking the "Import Material from Material Library" button and select the material (Figure 02).

The procedure is shown in the video.
