Reproduction of part color in drawing

Reproduction of part color in drawing

Hi,

I would like to have a feature that would allow colors assigned to a part/assembly to appear in the 2D drawing. This would be helpful for clients to see parts that are part of a large assembly, which might otherwise be difficult to spot in a 2 D Black and white drawing. Thanks !

Cheers,

Avinash

Does "Colors come from" option do what you want? If not you way want to add more detail.

You can show the color of the model also by displaying the drawing view in Shaded display.

Does anyone know how to set the "Colors come from" property to "model" as default? What is the name given to it in the .dtl file?

Although it seems like it would be a simple option, I don't believe they have that option in the drawing setup or the config.pro.

I personally wouldn't use it except in a few rare cases due to the fact that my plotter pen widths are based on colors and that would make a mess of my drawings. But it seems like a valid option to have.

Maybe that would be the product idea you should submit...Add the option to set colors from model in the drawing as default.
