I need to assemble several instances of the same part, but in different colours.I believe you can do this by specifing the colour as a parameter using family tables. How do I do this? I recall seing this on a proe web site somewhere but can't rememeber what site.
My suggestion would be to open each part into a window, change the color (view>model setup>color and appearance) of each part, save them, and then look in your assembly to see if they were changed. The color of the part is associated with the instance, not the generic. It worked for me.
