Hi there,

 

Anybody knows how to add material in Part Families?

 

I attached to model a material by using Asign Material command, but when I choiced Material collumn in the Part Families command, the alert shows like image below:

As the message states, naming the solid body is the key here.  You can assign a name by right-clicking on the solid body (specifically the solid body, and not a feature) and adding it here in the "General" tab:

Once you've done that, the body will be available for inclusion in the part family spreadsheet when you choose Material from the Available Columns option menu:

...and if you set up your spreadsheet something like this:

Then the part family children will take on the appropriate new density based on the identified material:

Hope that helps!
