I have version 8.0.2, so a little out of date.
I use formZ primarily for creating 3D models of electronic components. Then I link them to my electronic CAD to produce 3D models of complete circuit boards.
I often get .step files from vendors for their parts, and when I import them to formZ they are a single monochrome object. I would like to change the color of some portions of the model for a little more realism, but the only way I've found to do this is by Boolean splitting the object into separate parts and assigning different colored materials to each part. Sometimes that isn't bad, but in general that's really difficult and time-consuming.
I would love to assign colors to faces of the model. This would be much faster. When I select Faces as the pick topological level, though, the imported model faces don't highlight and can't be picked.
I do Object Doctor to clean up the imported .step, and that doesn't help.
Is there another way to do this in 8.0.2, or has it been added in a later version?
