Benefits and Description

In 3D mode, use the Contour Sets attribute to create multiple contour sets. For each contour set, specify the fill color and add one or more objects (parts) to it.

Project the 3D set (assembly) to 2D with remove hidden lines and create contour fills selected in the 3D Projection-Set dialog box. The contours of all parts added to contour sets in 3D mode are filled with their specified colors in 2D.
