I have projected a sketch on the face of a ball, and now I want to color this area with a different color.
Are you doing this??
What's the difference between these 2 posts?
I have succeeded, according to a reply, to project a sketch and make a split-line, now how to color the region created by it?
Ok, They just looked very similar. Just RC on the area created by the split line
and change the appearance (color). FYI, you can also add texture appearances as well.
Are you trying to do this at the part level? If so click on the surface that you have created and you should see the flyout menu appear. In the flyout menu go to the Appearance icon and hit the drop down arrow. This will show you the various levels at which you can change the appearance for your selection. In this case since you just want to change the color of a surface you created choose the Face and then it should open the Appearance menu and you can select a color. Hope this was what you were looking for.
Click on the area you want to color. Select the gold "Appearance Callout" icon. Select the box in the Face row and the Color column. This birings up the Property Manager for Colors. Pick the color you want.
The above works for SW2008. It's a bit different in the later versions, but I don't have them running right now to see what the differences are.
I can not select only the region inside the split-line, the whole ball face is selected.
If your Split Line was indeed successful than you should be able to select your new region. Do you want to upload the model?
You will have to split the face first. Check my video in above post.
I succeded. I used, before, the Insert/curve/projected instead of split-line. What's the difference?
Now, how can I get rid (erase) all those points? I unchecked the View\points option, made rebuild, but no help. watch picture.
And how did you record the movement of your mouse, with which software?
I removed the points, but still, the other questions...
Project Curve makes a curve that lies on the surface that you project it on. It has no effect on the surface itself. Split Line splits the surface into multiple surfaces. Personally, I think it is a mistake for SW to put the Split Line feature in the Curves menu. It should be in the Surfaces menu or on its own, like Wrap, which is a very similar feature.
