Is it possible to bring individual face colors from Autodesk Inventor into Solidworks?

Question asked by Brad McDermott on Feb 24, 2020

Is it possible to bring individual face colors from Autodesk Inventor into Solidworks via the 3D Interconnect interface?  We can get individual face colors to come through via STEP but I can't seem to figure out how to keep face colors through 3D Interconnect.  Does anyone have any experience with this?  We are trying to define a "paint this surface and not that one" by splitting faces in Inventor and using the 3D Interconnect interface to translate the files.  I can't get the face color to stick in the Inventor output.  BTW, I've been using Solidworks for total of 7 hours so I apologize if this is a dumb question.  Any advice that anyone has would be much appreciated.  Thanks. -Brad

 

I'm trying to mask the yellow face and paint the green faces green:

 

The circular yellow face the lowest green face is the result of a "Split Face" in Inventor.  The colors and the Split Faces are gone after passing through 3D Interconnect into SW.
