  1. Select a specification from Project Specs.

  2. Select Material Assignment Setup in the Properties window, and then click the Material Assignment ellipsis.

    The Material Assignment dialog box displays.

  3. Select Component Groups.

  4. In the Assign Material list, select a new material in the right column from the list that displays for the component. Material numbers in this list are based on industry standards. To access detailed information on a material number in the Assign Material list, open the Base Catalog Data, and then open the Material Table.

    You can export or import material data while assigning material to all components.

  5. Click OK.

  6. In the Main Spec List View, expand a component list, such as Caps, and then select a component, such as Cap Buttweld to assign a material.

  7. Select the Material list in the Edit component pane, and then select Use Specification Material.

    For the software to read the material from the Component Groups folder, you cannot have any other material assignments in the All Components folder, the Component Group node, or the Component Type node.

    The software reads the Material Assignment set for the component you selected. For example, if you set the Caps material to ASTM A105 in the Component Groups folder of the Material Assignment dialog box, and then set the Cap Buttweld material in the specification to Use Specification Material, the Cap Buttweld material would be ASTM A105.
