Workbench creating material

Hey guys,

How do I create my own material in workbench? The material that I need is not available in engineering data.

I have all the material properties that I need, just having hard time figuring that out.

Thanks in advance

Should be right there in Engineering Data. Make sure that you click the (IIRC) pencil box that allows changes to be made. You can then add a material to an existing, or create a new material library.

Note that if you do not create a valid material with full properties, workbench will not let you leave. Can be an issue if you forgot what material you changed, etc.
