Create Material Macro
The Create Material macro can quickly create new materials with industry standard property values.
First download and install the Create Material.vbs file and save it to the folder:
C:\SProV8i SS5\STAAD\Plugins\Create Material.vbs
If there is an older version of the file already there, replace it with this one.
To load the macro into STAAD.pro use Tools - Configure User Tools.
And in the Customize User Defined Tools window click New (Insert)
On the new row enter a name, like "Create Material"
and in the file selection box select the Create Material.vbs file.
Then click OK.
Afterwards, to use the tool, go to Tools - User tools, or the Hammer icon at the end of the file toolbar.
Then select the desired material from the list.
And finally check the properties of the material to make sure they are the desired values.
