Importing Colors in Part and Assembly Modes
You can import colors in drawing, part, and assembly modes.
You can import colors of IGES curves and surfaces, both standard (red, green, blue, yellow, magenta, cyan) and user-defined. When the system imports them, it puts the colored surfaces and curves on named layers. The naming convention for layers is as follows:
For standard colors—INTF_<COLOR>, where <COLOR> is one of the following: RED, GREEN, BLUE, YELLOW, MAGENTA, CYAN.
For user-defined colors (IGES Entity 314, Color)—If the name of the color is present, the layer name corresponds to the color name (for example, BLUE). If the color name is unspecified, the layer name is INTFCLR_<XXX>, where <XXX> is the IGES ID of the color entity.
