Adding Neodymium material

I am trying to simulate the magnetic pull force on a steel plate with different arrangements of magnets. I was going through the Ansys EMAG Tutorial 1: Field Surrounding a Permanent Magnet to get an idea of what to do, but have run into an issue. In the tutorial Neodymium is an available material in the engineering data, but it is not available in mine. I am using Workbench 17.1, in the tutorial Workbench 12.1 is used. I can't believe they would remove a common material like that in an updated version, is there any way I can add that material?

I am facing exact the same problem as you, and do you know which material in Workbench 17.1 engineering data can be used as permanent magnet now?
