Will there ever be a way to create a material by stating the percent of each element in the material? For Example Cu 98.5%, Sn 1.5%

Thanks for the request, Tim!

Defining a material in Sherlock requires an in-depth understanding of the mechanical properties of the material. Changing element percentages could have a significant impact on these properties. With this in mind, it is unlikely a model can be developed correlating element percentages to modulus, CTE, etc. unless a ton of rigorous testing was completed.
