For shell bodies in Simulation, you can color the surfaces by either material or thickness after the mesh is created by creating a mesh plot (right-click on the Mesh icon after a mesh is created). Or even before a mesh is created, from the drop down menu: Simulation > Shells > Show color by thickness (or Show color by material). But for the latter, the plot does not stay on the screen after closing the dialog box. You can also change the colors by double-clicking the color box; see below for result.
