People who have used them will know what I'm talking about... how do you get them on a model?
I've seen them used at last year's PTCUser conference but I can't remember how to get the zebra stripes on a model. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with rendering, but I'm not 100% certain.

One step further, select the part from the model tree (top item) and it will select all the surfaces. All the edges will turn red - hit view repaint and it will get rid of the red lines but keep the zebra surfaces. The same method works for Analysis, geometry, Draft. You can select individual surfaces by control clicking, otherwise pick the part from the model tree (again top pick). View repaint again will get of rid of your selection (red lines) but leave the draft angle colors. Draft check - I think it changed between one of the WF versions. - This is WF3, I assume it's the same in WF4. Jim
The zebra stripes tool in Pro/ENGINEER is often not using a high enough resolution for fine manipulations concerning light reflections used in ergonomic or specialized industrial design. So in substitute I suggest using hi resolution imagery. (above 2500dpi) I like motogp pictures personally. I'll add the images to a room and turn on real-time render. I find the crisp edges I get from a high resolution image offers better results over zebra stripes.
