    Solidworks allows you to create and save custom materials. If you know enough of the materials properties to suit your purpose, simply create a custom material and save it to the custom materials library and it will be there for you to apply.

    For example, we often use engineered plastic that isn't quite the same density as the nearest matching default library plastic, so we adjust the density and save it as a custom material to apply to the appropriate parts.
