Colour Mapping a Complex Surface to Indicate Interference




I have a model of an accelerometer that must be situated on a complex surface. This surface has many ribs and pockets, so the accelerometer can only be tangent at certain locations without interference. I would like to create a colour map of the surface showing where exactly my accelerometer can fit without interferance, (go, no-go). 

For example, the accelerometer would not be able to fit in a pocket smaller than itself, so I would like to colour the inside of the pocket red, whereas a flat surface with enough clearance would be coloured green. 


I'm new to NX and am unfamiliar if it offers such a feature.

If anyone is aware of something that would suit my needs, please get in touch.
