I notice on the material table there is ABS High, Medium Plastic, Acrylic Plastic. Are any of these the same as Wood Plastic Composite?

 

Thanks

Greg,

No, they are different.....I'm not 100% sure, but I think Student Edition does not allow you to create your own material [to those pre-loaded] definitions, as you would need to in this case.

Greg, wood/plastic composite is typically an extruded thermoplastic (PolyVinylChloride, PolyPropelene, PolyEthylene) with wood flour or fiber mixed in as a filler.  Since it is a composite and the formulas vary widely in the mixture, the mechanical properties are very specific to a particular brand/product.  You would surely need to create the material your self.


Thanks,
