Looks like this is weakly implemented. Below find the responses with some suggested work arounds.
I have a start model for turning, which includes a workpiece. When creating a new manufacturing model based on the start model the setup drawing and manufacturing model/manufacturing assembly are re-named properly. However, I was expecting a popup window that allowed for re-naming the workpiece, but I do not get this, and the workpiece keeps its "start" name and tries to save back to the start directory. Am I missing a confg option?
How do you properly handle workpieces in manufacturing start models
