Retaining assembly-level color when exporting to STEP 214/IGES

Question asked by Graham Milne on Mar 30, 2015

I have an assembly in which I have applied colors at the sub-assembly level.

 

I want to retain those colors when exporting to STEP or IGES, which I need to do in order to share the file with a partner company that does not use SW.

 

As things stand, my output files seem to retain the colors of the parts, not the sub-assemblies.  When I hit options in the Save As.... dialogue for STEP or IGES, I do not see anything that obviously relates to retaining the current appearance.

 

 

I do have some hidden and suppressed parts in the model, in case that is an issue when exporting.

 

What do I need to do to export the model as I see it displayed at the top-level?
