How do I specify a non-uniform conductivity to my blocks or plates?

You may do this by modifying the conductivity values in "Model/Materials".

Solids materials can have Isotropic, Orthotropic or Anisotropic conductivities.

Isotropic solids have uniform conductivities in all directions.

Orthotropic materials can have different conductivities in X, Y, and Z directions.

The conductivity of Anisotropic materials is defined by a nine component tensor.

So, depending on the complexity of your materials, you can choose either Orthotropic or Anisotropic options for your materials.
