Physical Material Properties Support

Our support for reading physical material properties from Inventor and SolidWorks files has been improved.

  • Inventor: We are now supporting Shear Modulus for isotropic and orthotropic materials.

  • SolidWorks:

    • We are now supporting Shear Modulus, Specific Heat, Yield Strength, Tensile Strength, Thermal Conductivity, Poisson Ratio and Thermal Expansion for isotropic materials. We also retrieve the density when no material is applied.

    • Two materials can have the same name if they are stored in different libraries. Thus, we now prepend the name of the library to the name. For example, the material ‘Material’ from the library ‘Library’ is returned with the name ‘Library|Material’.

  • Units: All values in A3DMiscMaterialPropertiesData are now returned in SI units, as stated in its documentation.
