    Is there a way to control part color in a family table? I would like
    to be able to insert different colored parts into an assembly.

    Thanks,
    Mr.B.

    There are two techniques that I know of. The first involves quilts created on part surfaces, then given a color with Color and Appearances, then referenced in the family table. This is covered in detail in the Knowledge Base under TPI: 33241.

    The second involves part material and the use of the parameter, PTC_MATERIAL_NAME and a .DMT file which links the material name to various colors and textures. This technique is outlined in the Knowledge Base article SPR: 1782554.

    In addtion, the question has been asked (and answered) many time, though not recently. However, those answers are available by searching comp.cad.pro-engineer on Google Groups for "color family table".

    IIRC, the "Other" miscellany plays no role here. But the "mystery" can easily be dispelled by clicking on it.
