Does anyone know a way to change the color of welds?
Lets say I have a green painted structure and therefore want to have
green-looking welds in my weld-assembly?
each time i render an image the colour of the weld goes back to its original colour (grey texture) even though i've created a new style for welds (i want them red with the texture overlayed)
The welds do not take the color set in the View -> Appearance -> Color listbox when the view actually renders.
For the welds to be the desired color in the rendered view, do this:
- Open the assembly containing the welds. Find the material used for the welds by right-clicking
the Welds entry in the browser and selecting iProperties.
- Then open the Manage -> Styles Editor and find the material.
- Change the color style used in the listbox.
- Choose yes to save edits.
(If you have an assembly welded into another assembly with welds already made - make sure to change both.)
(PS: For some assemblies with only one part and welds, I have found it necessary to change the color of the weldment material in the PART also - even if no welds are done in the part - only changing it for the assembly does not work)
