I am working with a 3D model and I would like to make each line of a particular color, that way it will be easier to differentiate the sketch, I want to know if there is a way to do this
I'm not aware of any way to do that. While a sketch is active you can change the colors of selected lines with the Line Color icon on the Line Format toolbar, but they will revert to the default color when the sketch is closed, or even if you click on an endpoint and move the line.
Edit: I was wrong: See below.
you can change the color of the whole sketch when it is closed and when you edit it it can have different colors on each piece of geom.
so while it is closed turn of the line format tool bar, select the sketch from the tree then click the paint brush on the tool bar, color palette pops up and pick your flavor, same goes for geom in the open sketch.
You're right. It turns out that my Color Display Mode button was on. I should have noticed that before.
Damn I helped a #8

I would probably be higher if they hadn't made a game of the badges to get points

Can't IMAGINE why you'd want each individual line to have a different color. But to each his own...
You also might want to explore using sketch blocks. Each sketch block (one or more entities) can have a unique color.
I work a lot with 3D sketches and sometimes they look overwhelming, having color I could split main parts as top frame, middle frame, bottom frame and such, hope that makes sense to you
Brian here is an example of why I would like to have colors for different groups of lines, this is a simple shape but looks messy inside a 3D sketch, if I can use colors I might be able to make it clearer
