You can download one in the Files section. See Files > Miscellaneous Files > Color Maps

Well, you have a couple options.



1) If you do not currently have a color file, rename it to color.map and place it in your start up directory (where your config.pro is). Your start up directory is your first working directory when you start Pro/E. Pro/E will automatically load the color.map file when it starts.



2) If you already have a current color file, you can append these colors to it. In Pro/E, go do Colors & Appearances. Click File > Open, then browse for this file. It will append the colors to your current pallate (sp?). Click File > Save and choose to append the colors to your current color.map file.



Hope this helps!

Hmm, all goes well except when I save the file, I only have the option to save it as a .dmt (project palette) file. How to save it to the color.map file?

ptc graphics library for Wildfire has lots of colormap files. I made some decent colormaps for 2001 but now after I have installed graphics library I no more use those colormaps.

When I try to download the colormap_ptc.zip I get a "file not found
message". Is there anywhere else I can get a decent selection of
colours from?



Thanks,
