Coloring faces

3dexter3dexter Member Posts: 89 ✭✭✭
One thing I miss is the simple task of coloring individual faces in a model!

I hope to see this option coloring faces and features in Onshape in the very near future!

    +1 for face / feature color (and consider this to be done also in keyshot)

    I would like this too. I would use it when I model decal and sign's. Not high on the priority list but would be handy.

    Has there been any progress on this? I work with boards which are laminated on some sides. It would be great if I could see at once whether a non-laminated face is visible.

    As a workaround you can use "Offset surface" with some minimal offset off the face you want to color, and then color that surface:

    I would like to represent that when there is a hole, the inside of hole is different color. That would mean 6 offset surface per part and would most certainly mess with dimension checking. Please put some priority on this standard feature.
