Material Data For CAD And FEA

SolidWorks and Cosmos software users can effortlessly import part-material information from a growing collection of 47,000 material data sheets through a new partnership with online information provider MatWeb.

MatWeb's searchable archive of material data sheets provides engineers with more than 900,000 data points on the physical, mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical, and processing properties of the materials in their designs. MatWeb's engine exports data in native Cosmos format from the archive into the FEA interface. Users can search the material archive and read material data sheets for free. If they want to download information directly onto their computers, MatWeb charges a small subscription fee.
