Select holes/cylinders by size?

Please see attached image which is just a portion of a part that I have imported from Parasolid data (dumb solid).  I am looking for a way to select holes/cylinders of a certian diameter and change the color of them.  There are well of 300 holes on this part so selecting them individually is not a very good option.

 

Ideas?

 

Thanks

How are the holes modeled?  In NX8.5 you can assign a color to a feature.  For Example you could have put all of the .125" size holes in one hole and or extrude feature.  Right click on the feature on the part navigator and assign a feature color.

Data came in as Parasolid so there is no history and or features in the model. Is there a way to extract features from a dumb solid?

Thanks

Oh I missed that parasolid information.  My fault.  Could you use Group faces with synchronous technology.  Use the smart face finder and select same radius.  This will make a group of faces in your part navigator.  Now you can right click on this group and assign a color to this feature.
