Number of all colors a part comes in?

Is there an easy way to tell how many colors a part comes in without counting on my owned parts page? Trying to put my parts in drawers/cabinets, but not having an easy time finding how many colors each has. Example 3024 1x1 apparently comes in 47, so an Akro Mils 64 should contain them, and some 1x1 modifieds...Trying to buy to maximize space, part volume.

    Not sure if this helps but if you are using parts from just your sets, you can sync your Brickset list with rebrickable and it will tell you how many of a part you have in each colour.

    It also lists every colour available for a particular part that have been released in sets.

    Thank you, @bandit778! Not the one stop pure Brickset solution I hoped for, but better than my alternative.

    Brickset does have a way, just go on the part design page: https://brickset.com/parts/design-3024 that tells you there are 45 colours for that part.

    Bricklink also has a list of which colours are in sets for each part: https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=3024&v=3&in=S This tells you it's appeared in 58 different colours.

    The only problem with Brickset's catalogue - and the reason for the difference - is that because it's primarily taken from Lego, the older sets often aren't inventoried, and if an element has more than one ID, Brickset won't count them as one part. In this instance the transparent ones are a different ID, adding 8 parts to the Brickset total of 45 for part 3024.

    Thank you! I guess I somehow missed that!

    Do you have every part in every colour? If not, surely you need an indication of the number / volume of parts that you actually have. Otherwise you will have empty slots or small numbers of parts in slots when certain part/colour combinations are rare.

    Correct. I'm just trying to organize it by ROYGBV, etc. And, I figure the colors I don't have yet will probably be in a set someday.
