How do I change color of pipes?


New member
Does anyone know hoe to change the color of Pipes in the Creo /Piping Apllication? I cant change colors that way you normally would on a part surface, etcc. Thanks for your help.

Do you use specification driven piping?

I'm not very sure, but I think there ist a configuration file somewhere in the piping directory, which defines the colors.

go to Render / Appearance.. then click the drop down next to Clear Appearance, and select Clear All Assembly Appearances... Then you can pick the color you want, click the assembly in the model tree, and it will change the color... that is the only way I've found how to do it for non-spec driven piping.
