The Wire Color and Gauge is derived from the wire layer. This is assigned by creating a Code (like WT01) that has something like this in the command list.

 

(c:ace_cb_set_wiretype #data 1 0 "_WIRETYPE=BU_1.0MM^2")

 

Now when you place the marker block on the wire in circuit builder, during the build that wire will be moved to the layer that is stored in WIRETYPE.
