Add Selected surfaces of a part of Selection Sets


With Creo 6 it is possible to use Selection Sets. Very easy if you are selecting the same thing over and over. 

Nowdays you can use this to selects complete parts. This works perfect

 

Some companies have surface models / omported STEP files / Surface ShrinkWraps in use.
This feature would enhanced if it was also possible to ad different surface selections to the sets.

Currently it is not possible to make a selection set of a couple of surfaces.  To also Ass surfaces to selection sets would be a great enhancement.2022-04-11 15_45_01-Drill_v8.c3di - Creo Illustrate Professional.png
4. What is the use case for your organization?

Company also uses STEP import (surface) / ShrinkWrap / Surface models. These can not be set as geometry.
5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?

Surfaces are collered by the engineers. This color hase te be manually removed by the illustrators. And then again selected to give an other color. 

Having selection sets available for different surfaces would be great!
