Default Assigning Material to Multiple Parts

I have a geometry which consists of multiple parts ~1000 and consists of four different materials. I have created geometry in design modeler and materials have also been defined in engineering data using my own values.

Now i know that material of an object can be specified in solver, which in my case is Model (doing Static Structural Analysis).

I have created Named Selections of those parts which consist of same material but now when I go to Model to specify the materials, I don't see any option of using Group Named Selection to specify material.

I mean I have to select each and every part of my geometry to specify materials and it would really be tedious.

If someone can help me in this regard as how can I specify materials to bulk parts, I mean using multiple selection in Model.

I know that they can be selected more at a time by pressing control and then selecting from the process tree under the Geometry but out of thousand solid, they are just named as Solid Solid and Solid so that is not possible.

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

But in my case selecting one by one would not be feasible or I don't know even possible. Anyone else who knows something?

Here you have two options :

Entire model and by selected surfaces.

Selected surface : First hide surfaces for solid parts (if any) and name Fluid and select all visible surface and repeat for fluid part
