Vericut Model color

this has been bothering me for a while and not sure how to fix it. In Wildfire5 and Creo1.0 Vericut, my model color comes in colored red. It seems to me that if the gouge color is red and the model color is red it makes gouges difficult to see!!

What I have been doing is modifying the model color to fix this problem. I can't seem to find where the model color is set to change this in the configuration file for vericut. Does anyone else have this problem? or can someone tell me  how to set the model color permanently.

    One way to change the model color is by left mouse click on the part model in the model tree and A configure window will appear at the bottom and you can change the color. I am not sure the color will stay changed for future models.vericut_.JPG

    To make it permanent, do this:


    Go to the loadpoint loadpoint\architecture folder (Ex:D:\PTC\WF5_M130_64\x86e_win64) and look for the "vericut" folder - Ex: D:\PTC\WF5_M130_64\x86e_win64\vericut


    There you are going to find two files:



    proem.VcProject (Metric)


    Open the file with the units you use most in a Vericut session (You can open it using the embedded license as usual by launching Vericut from Process Manager)


    There you can change settings like tolerances (They affect the speed of simulation), Auto-Diff, Colors, whatever you want.


    Save the files and next time you launch Vericut from within Pro/NC you are done.


    One thing: If you upgrade Pro/NC using the same folder, don't forget to backup your files otherwise the installer will overwrite them.


    Good luck,
