I am using Inventor 2014.  I have an assembly where one parts has to be trimmed after assembly.  When I do the cut in assembly, the part turns to a different color (black).  Any ideas?  My current view rep in assembly is Default.

more than likely the "chunk" of material that you are cutting away had its color modified from default for that body..
