I run the program AutoMeshColor.vb, an NX OPEN for CAE utility that changes colors for mesh automatically.
Description: This program will modify the color of all meshes in the .fem based on a user specified criteria. When executed, the user will be presented with a form containing 4 options: 1) By Mesh - each mesh will have it's color modified 2) By Collector - All meshes in the same collector will be colored the same 3) By Physical - All meshes with the same physical property will be colored the same 4) By Material - All meshes with the same material property will be colored the same
But I note selecting by MESH COLLECTOR the result is not correct:
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is standard functionality since at least NX 9, so there's no need to use the NX Open program. Go to Model Display and select the Element tab. Then choose the color basis for the meshes - the same options that you have in the NX Open program are available in the Model Display options.
I can't comment on why the NX Open program isn't working - my programming skills aren't what you'd think they'd be...

As Mark stated, the need for this program was eliminated by out of the box functionality several releases ago.
If you still would like to continue to use it, toggle on the "Write detailed summary to list window" option. The output there should tell you why the color of the 1D meshes was not changed.
