Configure Part Name Feature?

Does anyone have a custom feature for naming parts? We would like to configure the name of the part with an input variable. Configuring the name through the properties does not work for this application.

    I actually worked on one for that too. It's here. To give credit where it's due, I started by copying one by @NeilCooke
     (yet again) and modifying it only a tiny bit. Check his out here. I'd eventually like to find a way to toggle each field between a string or an equation, but for now, the prefix and suffix are strings and the segments are type "Any" meaning they can do calculations. It can also assign the part number if that's useful.

    It will not give me access to the first link. Perhaps it's private? @Evan_Reese
