How to change weld material in Inventor weldings?

A - answer Welds have assigned the default material "Aluminum-6061", how to change it to mild steel or brass?

In the assembly (weldment) browser, right-click on the item Welds, select Properties, go to the tab Physical and choose your new weld bead Material. You can also save it to your template.
