How do I get more colors for the part painter or alter existing ones to make more variety?

Hi @jevs

 

 

just go to the VIEW tab - Styles - Fae Styles and add a new one or change an existing.

And best I also would recommend, to go to the Style Organizer afterwards and copy the new styles/colors to the material database of Your choice.So You have them available for every future part.

IDK if this would suit you but here's a part which I got on this forum from where or whom I don't recall. Use style organizer in the styles dialog to add any to your templates or whatever.

"Styles" with the letter A's next to it......I thought it was for fonts...so I didn't look in there for colors to paint faces etc.

@jevs, you can mark more than one answer as a solution. Hawcad's post seems as worthy as mine if not moreso.

@bshand, that's awesome!  Somebody must have had a hell of a lot of spare time to do that!

I think that file was created [quite some time ago now] by our good man Dave Merritt [@uk_dave].

I think you may be correct, sir. Smiley Happy Thanks, Dave!

<edit> Actually I think there were two parts. One Pantone, one RAL and I combined them with SE defaults. I think.
