There's a guy at work that says he can export his assembly model to an IGES file, then import this IGES file right back into an empty Pro/E Assembly model and the components will all be the same grey color. He says that no matter what colors he has the original assembly components set to they will not be retained in the target Pro/E assembly model.
My experience has been the exact opposite. Component colors are indeed retained. This leads me to the main question. What config.pro option should he be using to retain assembly component colors when exporting and importing3-D assembly model IGES files? I don't have any config.pro options present in my personal config file that would effect this behavior in any way. At least none that stand out to me.
Any ideas on how to achieve what he is after regarding assembly component colors being retained with 3-D IGES file imports?
