SOLIDWORKS Composer Custom Colour Silhouettes

Article by Matt Campbell, CSWE updated July 12, 2012


You can highlight aspects of your image by creating an .svg with Technical Illustrator in 3DVIA Composer.

If I want to bring attention to the nose of this part I can use Line Thickness and Line Colour to do this.

First you select the nose, and then in the Properties tab change the outline options.

For this example, I will change the width of the line to 5 and change the colour to red.

When you go to export your file in Technical Illustrator as an .svg you need to un-check same colour for all actors. If not, it will ignore the colour change you made in the Properties.

There is a really great Youtube video that demonstrates how to do this:
