Color on assembly


New member

Is there a way to assign a color to an entire assembly in Inventor? Without having to "paint" every individual part?

The parts get their color from the material styles, but at a certain step in the manufacturing assembly process, the assembly is painted.

It would not be correct if I applied the color to the parts individually by changing the style, because that messes with the visualisation of the sub-assemblies.

Thank you
All right - figured out how to do it.

First select the components, THEN choose a color.
A bit different from ProE.
