Printable Test Swatch: Line Color Options
When you create your body model, you can choose from several line color options. Even though we recommend selecting the “light gray” line color for printing, the darkness of printing can vary from printer to printer. Here is a printable test swatch that includes all the grayscale line options for your body model. Print this page to test the different lines on your printer before purchasing your body model download. If the light gray is too light, then we suggest selecting the dark gray line option for your body model. The line color selection is located on the measurement form under section “1. General.”
