I received a great question about working with colored edges the other day. Most people don't even know it's possible to assign different colors to edges in a SketchUp model; I'll admit that I didn't until more than a year after I started working here. Coloring your edges is easy once you know the trick:
Keep in mind that because the By Material edge color setting is technically part of Styles, and most Styles use the All Same setting, your edges will usually go back to being all-black if you apply another Style. Don't despair – your edges appear black, but SketchUp remembers what color you chose to make them. All you have to do is follow the above steps to switch back to By Material and you'll be all set.Update Added an image to make things clearer.
