Disabling SOLIDWORKS Wireframe Colour

Article by Sanja Srzic created/updated September 5, 2018

Two settings determine if part colours are displayed in a SOLIDWORKS assembly set to wireframe, HLR or HLV mode; one set in the part, the other in the assembly.

In this image, there are several components with different colours applied at the part level; however, only one has edges displayed in the part colour.

In the assembly View menu, under Display, the option ‘Use Component Color in HLR/HLV’ enables part colour in SOLIDWORKS assemblies set to wireframe, HLR or HLV mode.

In a part file, if the option ‘Apply same color to wireframe, HLR and shaded’ is selected under Tools > Options > Document Properties > Model Display, then the part colour overrides the colour setting for Feature Colors – Wireframe/HLR, also found in the Model Display options.

Apply same color to wireframe, HLR and shaded

Back to the first image in this article, we can tell that the assembly document has the option ‘View > Display > Use Component Color in HLR/HLV’ enabled, and only the component ‘base plate’ seems to have the option ‘Tools > Options > Document Properties > Model Display > Apply same color to wireframe, HLR and shaded’ selected.
