Hello everyone

I am currently working on a project using model builder which produces a raster and vector file as the final outputs.

I have created symbology layers for both (3 values and colours (pic2)) of these outputs which i hoped they would both stick to when the final version is produced. I have done research and from what i have read i cant do this on raster but it is possible on vectors. 

Currently when the vector is loaded in it is a single value rather than being unique value format. I have add the vector symbology layer to each stage of the model that has something to do with the final output but no luck. (pic1)

I know that I can sort this manually when produced but the client would rather its done in the model

Any help would be very much appreciated

To apply symbology from a .lyrx to either a vector or raster outputs in ModelBuilder: 

1. Make the output a model parameter and apply a lyrx to its symbology property in the Model Properties dialog. This usually works best when the model is run as a tool.

2. Create a layer in the model with Make Feature Layer or Make Raster Layer, and run the Apply Symbology to Layer tool, and then add to display.

Hope this helps!
