CIVA Tip: Assign a material

  Did you know that assigning a material in an automated way is possible in CIVA?
If you have a specimen with many volumes and you need to copy the material of one of them in different other volumes, you can do it automatically with just a right click. This method is really time-saving when several volumes have the same parameters.
Do not hesitate to watch this video for a demo!
