Enhance the regeneration behavior for non basic parts (Pro/Cabling, import geometry, piping)

Enhance the regeneration behavior for non basic parts (Pro/Cabling, import geometry, piping)

When Model Player is performed on an assembly including Pro/Cabling parts, the cabling part will me marked as modified despite that no modification has been done to the part.

This behavior is known by PTC and several cases has been filed regarding this issue during the past years, i.e C10462913.

PTC refers to TAN 114464 and explains as follows:

"Based on R&D feedback in Wildfire they have added a few feature types

that they can check after regeneration to see if they have caused any

database changes. These feature types include most datum features (datum

planes, points, csys, and curves) and component features.

For all other features, if the feature regenerates they have to assume

that the database has changed and mark the model as modified."

and

"From R&D answer when a Regeneration is forced they estimate that

potentially the model is changed.

After for some feature types (most datum features (datum planes, points,

csys, and curves) and common ones) they added some mechanism to check

after regeneration to see if they have indeed caused any database

changes in the model.

This was not done for Solid pipe parts but it is completed for the

simple parts with standard features (basically it is regenerated but

they use the flags to understand if it is real modification or not).

So they improved the behavior for classic mode in Wildfire +, but have

not yet completed other areas "

An enhancement is requested so the regeneration behavior will be the same for all areas.
