    Is coming in v21 :D We are trying our hardest to fit Keyshot export of face data into v21 but no promises - may be v22.

    Below is a silly example, but you can now mark important faces of the model in a color code that suits your needs for downstream applications and quick analysis.

    So the face colors will also be exported into all (neutral) CAD-Formats? :)

    Very important feature, especially for creating and editing color codes, also STEP AP 214 import/export.
    The integration will be highly appreciated.

    I have to admit that I would be highly unlikely to use it. The only times I have used "Color by Feature" has been to make "engravings" stand out. -- Lew

    Yes, finally can mark painted and tolerance machined surfaces with different colors.

    This is awesome! I pair up Alibre with Altium to create electronics. Being able to make non-monochromatic parts is highly beneficial!

    Ah, but "Painted Surface" do not appear in the Drawing (which is where Tolerances and Allowances are properly defined). -- Lew

    Ofcourse not, it is just a visual purposes only...it is also nice to get your 3d model look good.
