Directional specific properties: composites.

Postby wingman » Sun Feb 09, 2020 12:43 pm

Is there a way to give FreeCAD materials different properties in each direction (XYZ)? For example, carbon fibre has different tensile strength in various directions depending on the orientation of the fibres within the material.

Is there a way to use directional properties in FreeCAD ?
