Hi

 

Feature floor color is blue, and wall color is red.

I try drafing. I want to express it in sidewall color.

But now it looks like this:

The hole line should be represented in red, which is the color of the sidewall.

Hi @kimies_saida,

Assign feature color to the complete counterbore hole feature then only you will be able to see the color of the hole faces in top view.

If top face have different color than the hole feature faces then it will look like shown which is correct.

Hi @kimies_saida,

 

Based on your setting you should see the red sidewall color if you've selected Wireframe Color Source: From Face.

 

I suspect the view settings are in a limbo state.  Open the View Settings for that view and look under "Common > Visible Lines".  Is a color defined?  If it is, go back to "Common > Configuration" and set the Wireframe Color Source to "From Body" and you should get a Visible Line Color popup asking if you want to remvoe the Visible Line Color.  Choose Yes and hit Apply and then set the Wireframe Color Source back to From Face and Apply.  You should now see the red sidewall color.

Thank you.

 

But Body face color is fixed.

The color lines I want are shown below.

This appears when you delete the top face.

Is there a way to do this without deleting the top side?

Can you upload your test part file?

 

Edit.

 

Ah, now I see the issue.  It didn't occur to me that you were also editing the color of the top and floor faces and now I see the issue.  The argument here is which face should get the priority - both manually colored faces share the edge, one being red, the other blue.  When this issue was reported in the past the suggested workarounds were to only color the holes, or use View Dependent Editing.

Hi @kimies_saida,

As mentioned earlier assign the feature color to the counterbore hole, create the required top view in the drafting and use view 'Lock Method' (enhancement in NX 11.0.1 version). Change the color of the faces as per your requirement to achieve the result.shading2.PNG

Hi

 

Thank you for your good advice.

 

But, There are many holes, and modeling is done by other companies.
Designed with colors as well.

 

DATA.jpg

 

Company 1 : Add modeling

Company 2 : Add drafting

 

It should be expressed in the current modeling color state.

Is there no function that can be displayed as wall color or floor color according to user's choice in from face function?

It is a necessary function. help me
