Colour and appearance of FEATURES


New member

In part mode in Pro/e 2001 I would like to change the colour of some surfaces by selecting certain features? I have protrusions in my model that join together, which means that when selecting surfaces in the appearances dialogue box, it selects a surface which spans across several of my protrusions. But I want to keep the colour of each feature different.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Nim.

roll back your model and then assign the colour to the feature, then you go one step further and assign another colour and so on. Don't know if this always works though...

Another possibility is selecting the surfaces with the right mouse button and then use the pick from list command to select a single one.

Hope it helps (and works hehe)
