GG to Robot - Material - Aluminium

I’m trying to export a grasshopper model to Robot using Aluminium as its material, however I am getting the below error on ggRobotCreateSectionProp:
“Steel Material required, use RC Beam or Column or check with Jon for other materials.”
I am using the ggRobotCreate Elastic Isotropic Material which connects to ggRobotCreateSectionProp.

What is the recommended way to work with Aluminium before sending it to Robot?

Below are some screenshots for reference.

Thank you!

Thanks for reporting this. I agree, this component should allow an aluminum material to be assigned.
I’ve uploaded a new version of the plugin that will permit this. Refer to this example script.
Let me know if this doesn’t help.
