      When inserting copied material group, there is no thickness groups or parameters seen on parameters grid area, because these settings are just a copy from original ones.

      If the parameter settings should be different than the original material group have, these different parameter settings are only seen on parameter grid area.

      Therefore, when setting the first thickness group, it is also important to set the required parameter section and parameters to complete the thickness group and parameter settings, because the set thickness group is not seen on parameter grid without the parameter section.

  5. Select the Parameter Section from the Parameter Sections dialog, and then click Insert.

    1. If the parameter settings are at the thickness group level, the Allowed Section is ThicknessGroup on Parameter Sections dialog.
