HOW TO USE REGEN IN MANUFACTURING

Hi,
in the help center it is not clear how to use REGEN TYPE in manufacturing.
 
◦ Normal—Regenerate a part normally.
◦ Slow—Regenerate a part, and displays the part and tool path after regenerating each manufacturing feature.
◦ Step—Regenerate a part, waits for user input after regenerating, and displays each manufacturing feature.
◦ Supp Fail—Automatically suppress any features that fail upon regeneration, along with their children.
◦ Compute CL—Specify if you want the CL data to be recalculated at regeneration time.
 
Exactly how should they be used?
Can you give me some examples?
 
Thanks

I've been using manufacturing for years and years and to be honest, I always just hit normal. I don't understand why all those options are there - maybe it's a legacy thing, from the days where computers were orders of magnitude slower than they are now. You wouldn't want to just regenerate, because it would take forever, so you just step through in reasonable chunks? I don't know.

 

Maybe next time I'm doing a bit of programming I'll try one of them...

I work on large files and it would be useful to reduce the regen time.

My fear is the regen normal might leave something incomplete?

In an automatic process, I wouldn't like to find an incomplete NC path and that errors go unnoticed.
