Where in the specification tree in CATIA is it best to add material?

By Ric Ros on 13 Jul 08:42 2 answers 124 views 0 comments

I am currently working on a rather large Project in CATIA. The product has many sub-assemblies, parts and bodies. I want to add a material to the product and I have noticed I can add material either to the product, to individual parts in a product, or to individual bodies in a part. Is there a difference between these methods? Is one of these more effective than the other?

    You are not supposed to add the material for products. You have to add the material details in parts file itself. If you add in product then the whole part would be consider as single material.
