In this video, learn how to use the Styles window to change the color of all edges to the axis they are aligned with.
- [Instructor] It can be difficult sometimes…to know if your edges are aligned with the axis…when it's appropriate for them to do so.…So creating an axis alignment check for yourself…can really be helpful.…That is done through the Styles window.…On a Mac it's under Window, Styles,…and on a PC this is under your default tray on the right.…So we're going to check the Edit tab,…and then the Edges icon on the left here.…Now, down at the bottom we can see Color,…this is the color of the edges…and this is where you can change the color,…if you'd like, but what I'd like to do…is use this dropdown menu and choose By axis.…
And now I'm going to minimize that,…and fly around my model, and I can notice…that all of the edges that are aligned…with the red, blue, or green axis, are that color.…So, if I notice any black edges, like on this roof,…those are the ones where it's appropriate…for it to be angled and not aligned with the axis.…So I notice right here, I've got something I need to fix.…That one's probably supposed to be aligned with an axis.…
