Apply colors to components
Concept Procedure

Apply colors to components

All components are displayed in the As Material color style, but you can use color to make a complex assembly easier to interpret. For example, instead of using the color associated with the material specified for the component, you can display all components created by one vendor in one color. Display components from a different vendor in a second color.

  1. Select the component in the browser or the graphics window.
  2. On the Quick Access toolbar, click the down arrow on the Color box.
  3. Scroll through the color list and click to select one.

The color is applied to the component. If you create a design view representation, the color preference is saved with that view.

Changing a component color in an assembly affects only that occurrence. It does not change the material color in Occurrence Properties.
