Btw, i found a even bigger database of similar files. Biggest one released for public access :D it has 278 materials in it, yayy!

Thanks for sharing Maximus, it will be interesting to see if these match the files NL included with the RC.

A quick look at some of the files seem to indicate that the have identical values as in the Maxwell setup.
I didn't see missing lines as Maximus reported.

Looks like we just have to install that windows help file and we have our documentation done.

Next project building a house out of Barium fluoride :)

Anytime friends :) if this info is useful then i'm happy hehe

max3d, sorry i mistook myself on the missing data (rough day here..) but you were right Max :) thanks for pointing it out.

It sure saves a bundle of time, as long as it won't cause us legal trouble we make use of their good descriptive helpfile (hope it won't!) :) then all is good.

you don't have to. in the directory max posted there's a file called nkhelp.hlp, in this file are listed all the materials that you find there, which happens to correspond to the .ior files we can find in our \complex iors\ folder. using that help file as reference you can easly track down any complex ior by its abbreviation, or just look for a material (say gold, cobalt, copper...) and then find out to which abbreviation corresponds.

oh well, i guess nl will provide us with a reference list eventually, but this works just fine in the meanwhile. also i guess we will know all the .ior files we use the most by heart once we get used to the new mat editor.

Well actually there are 9 materials in Maxwell which are not on the Swedish site and 6 which are not in Maxwell.

I will post them later this evening, because maybe these six extra materials are usefull. Didn't have a look at the content yet; it's just the result of some clever regular expressions and some painfull manual labour :)

hrothgar: really great job! Why do delete some of the materials?
