Appearance Manager

Appearance Manager



The application works in the following documents:


  • Changes the color of the selected surface and all surfaces with this color in the active model;
  • Removes unused Assets in detail/details of the active model;
  • Calculates the area of the surface selected color of the part.



  • Calculates the areas of all colors in the model and writes them in the user parameters in the drawing document.



The application does not work correctly if you use associativity for your parts in an assembly. You may also have problems if your parts have multiple model states with different textures on the same faces.

Changing the color and calculating the area is not performed with parts that are in the Content Center.
