Colour Drawing HLR HLV View

Friday June 12, 2015 at 2:42pm

In an assembly, it can be quite useful to have different parts shown in different colours. Whether that be to differentiate between parts, to display final colour or to indicate whether a part has been purchased or not.

This is easy in an assembly, but when you come to a drawing, the Hidden Lines Visible (HLV) and Hidden Lines Removed (HLR) display modes remove this colour, showing all the lines in black. You can modify this behaviour by going to; System Options > document properties tab > select detailing from the list on the left > find “Use model color for HLR/HLV in drawings” from the list on the right.
