Is it possible to assign a color to an object type? More specifically, I want to assign RED (for example) to SPLINES, and I want it done automatically (globally). The reason for this is simple: when we export sheet metal flat-patterns out of an Inventor drawing, we import it into AutoCAD for clean-up, which includes replacing all SPLINES with other geometry (our laser doesn't like splines). I want to incorporate this into a template, so when a DXF file is opened, the splines will automatically show up in RED. Currently, we select all and change it in the Properties dialogue box. This works ok, but I'd like to automate this if possible.
