Custom Properties tab

After a user creates a material class or subclass, a Custom Properties tab displays. Custom properties allow a user to attach specific attributes to a material class or subclass that is not included by default.

When configuring material classes or subclasses, custom properties can be locked so other users cannot change the value at a later time.

  • The Custom Properties tab only displays after a material class or subclass is created.
  • The Add Custom Property dialog changes depending on the Input Type that is selected.
