Multimaterial Optimization

Hi,

 

Is it possible to assign different isotropic materials with Psolid property to a single component? No assemblies , just one component. If yes, could you please tell me the process?

 

Thank you

Hi, 

I tried to use the model checker. It gives a warning of unused property . Is this normal while using more materials for a single component ? Or have I done some mistake again? Also, is there any way of knowing in the post process where which material has been used?

 

Thanks a lot

I should leave the component property unspecified, assign the properties to all elements and just add all the properties created to the list of properties in dtpl card . This is the procedure right?
