I am working on developing containers and in locations need to use PVC instead of structural steel, how can I get the material to show up as PVC in the BOM? I have created a new set of components by copying the steel beam inch files and editing them to work as PVC components already

RE: AFX Materials

Is there a Material field in the files that needs to be edited or assign the PVC material to the part templates.

RE: AFX Materials

Thank you for the idea, I had been through and changed all the tab files and tried to determine where I was going wrong, but the idea to change the material list let me realize that going into the Creo Part Files and editing the parameters let me change the material and naming properties. Thank you
