FaceStyle Eyedropper Tool for Solid Edge

In an assembly, when a component is selected its material is updated in the Part Painter.

This functionality is however not available in the Part environment.

Jason Titcomb of www.TLMGi.com has written a program which addresses precisely this need.

Assign this macro to a button on the ribbon in the Part or Sheetmetal environments. Upon clicking the button the program prompts in the Status Bar to select a face. Hover the mouse over a face and note the FaceStyle updates in the Status Bar.

Here's a small video of how the program functions.
