TML - Invert Color

Blog Post created by Nelson Hays on Feb 13, 2020



This simple TML is to invert the color of objects.  It will change the current color property, or the color 'by layer,' to the complementary color.  


The primary use cases are changing light colors of points and lines to darker colors to be used on a white background.  This may include field software, such as SiteWorks and Earthworks, and Drafting on white paper.  





Project example:


This CAD file has mostly light colors.  When sent to the field, many lines are difficult to see in Siteworks in direct sunlight.


Select the light colored objects, and run 'Invert Color.'


Here are the results, exported to SiteWorks:
