Materials, Cut List, Structural Member.


New member
I have created a "master" part file from a 3D sketch that utilizes weldments. Currently, I am trying to assign a material to specific weldments.

I.E.- Structural member 1 is made of 6065-T5 Aluminum and Structural member 2 is made of 6061-T6 Aluminum.

Is there anyway to assign the materials accordingly to each structural member in a single (1) part file?

Desired end result: To have the material show up in the cut list to calculate cost.
