The Heatstress overlay is a grid overlay and has therefore a difference overlay.

The Difference overlay is an Overlay which displays the difference between the original and the maquette state of a specific grid (dynamic) overlay. The difference overlay is therefore always linked to a specific grid overlay. This overlay is useful to see the impact of a certain action or measure in the 3D world on a certain overlay.
