different appearance in the same surface

Hello to everyone:

I would like to see the same surface with different colors. Can I do this?

Attached is an example

Nope. They have to be two separate, disconnected surfaces.

Re: different appearance in the same surface

I've never done anything with them, but would it be possible to make a texture and apply it to the surface? Like the wood patterns, but with just two colors? I don't know enough about this stuff to know the mechanics of it, but it might be a method?

You can copy the surface you want a different color, offset a surface by a small amount (0.01), trim that surface to the shape you want and color it.

Re: different appearance in the same surface

Man this Jive interface is killing me. Cut & paste below.

Step 1: Clear the Solid surface

Go to the Colors

Pick a 100% transparent color

Set category to surfaces

Pick on the surface of the model that will be split

Hit the Apply button

Step 2: Recreate Surfaces

The original surface is now transparent, the model is still solid and the top surface is still there.

Set the query filter to geometry

Pick on the “missing” surface

Use Edit > Copy (CTRL+C)

Use Edit > Paste (CTRL+C)

This initiates the surface copy dashboard

Use green check to finish new surface

Set the query filter to quilts

Pick on the “new” surface

Use Edit > Trim

Create/use a sketch that is the color border

Yellow arrow and hatching indicate portion to keep

Use the switch direction button until arrow points both ways

Use green check to finish new surface trim

Step 3: Color the New Surfaces

Go to the Colors

Pick the desired color

Set category to surfaces

Pick on the desired half of the split surface

Pick “Both” prompt

Hit the Apply button

Repeat step. The only difference is to pick the other half of the trim surface

You may or may not need to change color of new surface

If it is the same as the original model color
