DriveWorks Pro 15: How To: Drive the Color of a Part (KB12121016) [send feedback...]

Introduction

DriveWorks Pro provides the ability to drive a model's color. To do this, create and capture a custom property in the model called "DWColor" or "DWColour", for more information have a look at the Custom Properties help topic.

The result of the rule for the DWColor custom property should take the form:

Red|Green|Blue

You can use the Color function to easily create a color result, e.g.:

Color(255, 0, 0)

Returns "255|0|0" which is red.

Illumination properties (Ambience, Diffusion,Specular Amount, Transparency, etc.) can be driven by adding further parameters after the color values.

See Model Rules - Special Custom Properties for more information.

The table below shows some standard colors.
