Drawing color


New member
Don't know what's happened, but all my drawings are in fade black color now, dimmensions colors are ok though. Any help, please?

Sounds like you might have hit the Filter Generated Elements icon by mistake.

It's a little icon on the bottom menu that lets you check your drawing to see what was generated from 3D versus what you drew manually.

If this icon is orange (active) the drawing will look faded or gray. Just click on the icon to toggle it OFF (not orange)
