Custom Feature: Part Color
I made a Part Color feature here. It's useful to change the appearance of a part with configurations. I know you can configure the appearance of parts in the Configured Properties, but you're limited to setting up each possible permutation of the design, which is onerous especially when using a variable configuration that could be changed to anything. I needed something like this for something I was working on, then my wheels got turning on whether I'd be able to figure out how to drive it with a hexadecimal code, and it turned into a project-based learning exercise for me. I hope it's useful to someone else too.
