Edge curves from colored surfaces

Hello,

 

This is imported parasolid data and it is a single solid.  I have manually colored the golden colored faces and would like to extract the edge curve where the two (gold/blue) colors meet.  I'm using NX9.0.3.4 on a ADV5XMACH licnese bundle.

 

The image is just a portion of my model and the golden area travels all over the part.  Picking each edge curve is/was a bit laborious and i'm looking to streamline this process.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Jerry

I generally use extract geometry to copy the faces to another layer then pull the curves off of those newly extracted faces.

You can select by color with extract geometry.
