Change Part Name in Configurable Parts

I'd absolutely love the ability for Configurable parts to be able to change the name of a part. Our part number system includes the length of a part (for ease of use later on) and it would be sweet to be able to integrate the configuration function into our libraries and retain our part number system.

    @ethan_doak1 You can do this today for PARTS in the Part properties area of Configurations however I think this is more about using dimensions and other variables into the part name correct?

    If you want it to do this with a wildcard value from a config variable, that is a different request I can add this to.

    @ethan_doak1 something like this? It automatically names the part as it is found in the goBILDA online catalog and sets its SKU/part number, plus sets the Title 1 property to the appropriate catalog URL (all procedurally through the Property explorer FeatureScript)
