I like the idea of a material wb too. Path will need more material data in the future for setting feed/speed values on operations.
That means you will have totally different material properties than FEM needs (mainly Young's modulus and poisons ratio, ATM) ?
Yes, things like Brinell hardness that will factor into calculating material removal rate. But since I'm no where near needing that stuff yet, I was really just reacting to the UI discussion.
But good to know which wb will need the Material module in the future.
