Apply different colors to different surfaces of same component

hi everybody!

 

i meet a problem when i try to render a set of press mould, using autodesk showcase, after it's modelled with inventor.

 

to make it easy to understand my problem, i would like to simplify in this way:

 

suppose i make a box with 6 surfaces, front & back, top & bottom, left & right. by default, if i set a certain color to this box, all these 6 surface will be the same.

 

but my intension is to make 1 color on 1 surface respetively, so the box will have 6 colors totally in the end.

 

does anybody know how to do this in autodesk inventor or showcase?

 

p.s. i knew how to do this before, but i already forgot, and i didn't find the answer after searching a for a whole morning.

 

thanks a lot in advance and best regards!

In inventor, you can right click on one or several face(s) and select its properities. And then you can change the face appearance.
