Allow to remove color override when creating derived parts

Status: Implemented
by Contributor HE_mcollet on ‎01-15-2013 07:30 AM

If you create a derived component when the source component has its appearance ovveriden (on all surfaces or on some of them), you are not able to de-select the "User color override from source component" option (it is greyed out).

You have to create the derived part, then edit it to unselect the option.

 

It would be nice to be able to (un)select this option when creating the derived component.

In addition to the legacy solutions provided, this idea has been addressed/implemented within Autodesk Inventor 2014. Thanks!

Any improvements that would benefit the layout part modeling workflow (multi solid bodies) would be welcome!

Very welcome indeed. But there is a solution to edit a registry file in windows, that turn this off by defult. But it should not be that complicated.
