# Why are materials missing from the calculator?

In the first version of Glazy, all materials in the database were shown in the calculator. Not only did this slow down the calculator, it also gave users too many options that they would most likely never use.

For the new version of Glazy, materials in the calculator are limited to your inventory. To view your inventory, just visit https://glazy.org/inventory

(In the future, the inventory page will be able to keep track of how much materials you use, and which materials you currently have in stock.)

# How do I add a material to my inventory (and the calculator)?

  1. Log in to Glazy
  2. Find the material you want to add at https://glazy.org/materials/
  3. Click the "Add to Inventory" button. GlazyAddInventory

The material is now available in your inventory and calculator.

# Adding materials to inventory from the Calculator

You can also add materials to your inventory directly from the Calculator. Just type the name of the material you are looking for:

# Automatically Importing Recipes

To begin importing recipes, just click the "Show Recipe Import" button:
