Description

Description

Have you ever searched the standard Autodesk Material and Appearance libraries and wondered why the color you need doesn't exist? That's because you haven't created it yet! This class explains the difference between a Material override and an Appearance override and describes how you use them in your Inventor software model. We look at how to create just the right color for your needs and examine how changing the Visual Style setting can change how that color will display. Finally, we look at creating your own custom Inventor Material and Appearance libraries and discuss how you can share them with your colleagues.

Target Audience
