color-table for fits / threads / features

Hello NG,


in our company we want to substitute drawings with a color-palette. This means, we have to set different colors to different kind of featurs ( i.e. H7-fitting to red, thread to yellow, ....). We do this manually by now. I searched the help and community and also google but i don not find the way to set these things automatically. I mean, if on makes a fit-hole then automatically it appears in red. Alll threads he makes are in yellow and so on. Is there a chance to make a feature-based color-table in inventor and if it is so, can someone give me a short tutorial for creating this?


Any hints will be helpful.

Thanks in advance

No way that I know of for Inventor to do this as delivered.  But I suspect this could be done with iLogic, VBA, or an add-in.  However, I will leave it to others with more expertise to come up with a solution.
