    I'm not sure what you mean by "set a diffrent colour" Do you want the edges to be a different colour as in a line following the edges or just sharpen them.

    To sharpen them.

    Select the edges/Functions menu/Break phong shading.

  • i know how to break phong shading, the problem is that the edges who break phong shading and the ones who don't break it have the same color, and it would help to tell them apart if they had different colors

    As far as I can find out this is not possible. If it were there would be a colour option in the prefs.

    It would be a handy thing though. You should suggest it to MAXON.

    What about the "select broken phong edges" command? Run this then make the edges a selection.

    Hope this helps.
