Benefits and Description

During extraction of components, user-defined colors are automatically assigned to split and slider surfaces. With the colors, a manufacturing engineer can easily differentiate metal to plastic contact surfaces from metal to metal contact (shutoff) surfaces and use the appropriate machining methods.
