Add Materials

The Add Materials window pops up each time an optimisation is run if required materials are missing or disabled in the materials database. It can occur either when an unoptimised file is loaded or when an optimisation is run manually.

The list contains all the materials that are missing for a complete optimisation. For each required material, you can do either of the following by double-clicking the Action field:

Note: By default, the Actions field is set to "New" for each missing material, or "Pick" for each disabled material. In the latter case, the shortest matching material will be picked.

Click to exit the window and execute the decisions made for each material in the list.
