Did you know that you can assign different appearances to the same component in Creo?

We can now capture multiple appearance combinations for the same part and assembly and easily switch between appearance variants. Use Appearance state instead of Combined state. To do this goto View Manager to set the appearance state of your component.




You can also use appearance states inside combined states and switch between them


Master appearance can be changed but saved to only a new appearance state that will be auto-activated after creation



Default appearance can be changed

Editing appearances enables you to change. However when clearing assembly assigned appearances shown, your input is requested as to whether to remove appearances from active state only or from all active and non-active states including the default.
