In the Material property dialog, user can select the desired material type. There are currently 5 predefined materials which can be edited, added or subtracted. They are Aluminium, Galvanized, Mild steel, copper, brass and Stainless Steel. By defining a proper density of particular material, user can estimate the weight of the perforated sheet metal.  The colour of each material type can also be defined to create a visual appealing of the perforated pattern design.
