The regeneration footer concept is very interesting and useful, to have some kind of analysis features to be made only after the model is totally regenerated, like measuring the weight for instance.
Even though the concept is usefull, it could still be improved, by allowing further feature types to be moved there.
Currently, only this types of features could be moved to the regeneration footer:
"To Move Features to the RegenerationFooter
You can move the features that are created by default in the active list (in the ModelTreeabove the Insert Here node) to the RegenerationFooter.These features include the Analysis features, Publish Geometry features, Reference feature, Annotation features."
Only simple features is not enough. I created a group to measure a solid body to always have an up-to-date bounding box dimension for a part. The problem is that the group cannot be moved to the regeneration box, even if uses mosly analysis features. But since i had to create CSYS to measure the external distance to the body, in each of the 3 axis X, Y, Z in both directions, the CSYS cannot be moved to the footer, so, if the group is stuck in the middle of the model tree, it will not have the final body dimensions as intended.
Even extrude features could and should be made possible to be moved to the regeneration feature, for instance, for engraving text on a part, and that regeneration footer extruded feature should / could be automatically supressed when mirroring parts, since we do not want mirrored text in a part. If we could move that engraving feature to the regeneration footer, we could guarantee that a mirrored part would automatically extrude the text correctly, and not in a mirrored direction.
