Hello qin tian,

its not possible, cause .3ds have fixed colores.
If you want to have 3D Objects with the possibility to change colors, you can use AC3D (www.inivis.com), which support a .vrml export in flexsim mode.
In this mode you color the object in Material 0 from AC3D then you can change the color in Flexsim to the color you want.

Best regards
Tobias

Default Making a 3D object change colors and fit inside the yellow box in Flexsim



This is a quick tutorial video I made showing how to set part of an object to change colors in Flexsim and have it appear inside of the yellow selection box.
