    Right click on Material <not specified>; select Edit Material; right click on Custom Material and select New Library, give a file name and save it; right click on the file name that you created and select New Category; edit the folder with new material name; right click on new material name and select New Material; edit the Property to give to the new material and apply. Done... you can enjoy the new material...

    To create a new weldment profile:

    Open a new part and sketch a profile. Add additional points for use in the 'locate Profile' facility.

    Close the sketch.

    In the FeatureManager design tree, select the Sketch.

    Save As, choosing the 'Lib Feat Part (*.sldlfp)' option.
