Materials may only be assigned to 3D objects (i.e. a ground plane with thickness). Draw your ground plane and artwork as a sheet and assign a PEC boundry. This will provide quick results. Once you have the desired response copy your model to a new project and assign thickness and material, then look for changes in the response. It will take a long time so solve for meshed metal.
