CAM materials and CAD materials

In NX9, are the materials linked yet?  ie, if I assign a material in CAD (Tools, Assign Material), will this translate to the CAM side, or do they have to assign the material also?

This not not even implemented in NX 11.

Create an enhancement request at GTAC for this functionality, so that there is a higher priority assigned to this request.

ER is in process, I'll share the number once it's in the system.  I think I submitted an ER for this back in NX5 too

Currently NX uses a separate material library in each of the following modules:

  1. modeling
  2. simulation (FEM, CAE, etc.)
  3. tooling design (Mold, Die and Progressive Wizards)
  4. manufacturing
  5. high quality rendering

I think these are just a small excerpt and that there are even more.

Would be nice to have one material library with all the information need, so that the material specified during the design of a solid can be utilized in each of the subsequent modules of NX.
