When applying the topdown approach for machine design and their variations, it's often the case that it starts like this.
- A general skeleton is made
- Different datum features/coordinate systems are made to indicate the position of seperate modules.
- A Family table is made that has different values for the position of those modules (f.e. larger machines have some components further from eachother).
If you were to rename a datum feature (point or csys) in the main skeleton and you want this name to be updated in the instances, a normal regenerate won't work, it has to be done by an edit definition.
In order to avoid forgetting or overlooking some instances we'd like to see creo improved so the renamed features get their name updated by the regenerate action.
