Geometry Appearance Is Maintained in Creo Flexible Modeling
Appearance characteristics that are applied to geometry are maintained in Flexible Modeling operations.
Release: Creo Parametric 4.0
Benefits and Description
You can watch a video that demonstrates this capability.
Appearance characteristics applied to geometry are maintained in Flexible Modeling operations for most tools. Geometric operations such as Move, Offset, Modify Analytic, Edit Round, Edit Chamfer, and Flexible Pattern typically keep surface attributes such as color or transparency. This also applies to situations where a modification is propagated to other pattern members. In cases where the correct color cannot be determined without ambiguity, the part color is used for affected geometry.
