Locking materials in the material database

Locally added materials can be locked and unlocked in the Material database list. The lock status is indicated by an open or closed lock in front of the material name.

  1. Select Settings > Materials to open the Materials dialog.

  2. Click on the Database button.

  3. Select the material you want to lock or unlock in the material database list.

  4. Click on the Lock/Unlock button.

    The lock status of the material changes in the Material database list.

  5. To apply the changes and close the dialog:

    Click on Apply and Close.


    Click on OK.


If the material has more revisions, all revisions are locked or unlocked. In case it is used in a furnace, it will change the lock status in the furnace, too.
