Theres still not a way to reset all face´s color to ´´as feature´´? I can only seem to find old threads with no solution.


I really dont want to control click every surface someone before me manually changed, mb some VBA code ?

Hi rmerlob,


If you are using Inventor 2010 or later, you can expand the Solid Bodies folder in the browser and then right-click on the body and choose Properties. There you can set the color to As Part or to a specific color, and then use the Strip Overides button to reset any color overrides present.


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
