Revolved or Extruded body color from selected Section curve color

Genius

Hello Friends

 

I am working with Section Curves (From Edit Section) in a huge assembly. After generating the section curves i am changing the color of the curves.

 

If i revolved or extruded the Edit Section Section Curves the revolved body or extruded body should be generated with the color of the Section Curves. For example if the green color section curves are selected for revolve then the revolve body should also come in green color.

 

Is there any optio to set this.

 

thanks in advance

One option would be inheriting color of curves using Edit Object Display (Ctrl + J) command, after creation of feature.

 

  • Go to Edit Object Display (Ctrl + J) command
  • Select Revolve or Extrude feature -> OK.
  • Click on Inherit -> Select section curve -> OK.

As far as I know, there is no option for this.

 

You can report an enhancement with GTAC, if you didn't get option.

No, there is no such specific option available.

Probabaly you know this already, Set deafult solid/sheet body color same as section curves color using object preferences or customer defaults settings.

You can find a journal here that will find the solid bodies in the current work part and change their color to match that of the defining curves. Perhaps it will be of some use to you.
