Split Feature

I am creating a modelof a disconnect switch, and I am trying to limit the
number of parts to create. But I also want it to look like it was
assembled. I know in other 3d parametric CAD packages that there is a
split feature, which adds a split in the material, so that you are able to
see it is seperate parts. It doesn't actually break the model, it just is
for visual effect. Is there any feature comparable to this in Pro-E
Wildfire 1.0? If so, are you able to change the color of the surfaces
seperatley?

Thank,

Aaron Banik

Re: Split Feature

You can assign colours to surfaces separately. In the dialog change from
PART to SURFACES.
