Making a 3d drawing of a continuous stack up of materials


#1

I am trying to make a 3d drawing of a continuous stack up of different materials that are color coded different to be able identify the material. I will be routing out material to different depths down to the different material and want to see that in my drawing. What is the best way to approach this?

Make each layer or ply a component or group.Then, and this is a rare case where you should do this, paint each component/group with a different color. Normally you should paint the faces inside but in this case, paint the container instead. Then, when you cut away the routed areas, the color will show in the opening.
