Part Naming

cory_isaacsoncory_isaacson Member, Developers Posts: 43 PRO
I am using FS to generate multiple parts in a single feature (sometimes 20 or more). They come out with default names, like Part1, Part2, etc. I understand that part naming is not possible right now with FS. Is there a way to do this with the API, after the parts are generated? If so, how can I figure out what PartN is so I can rename it (such as MyPartN)?

    Is this still the state of the art? Is there an FS solution yet?

    There is no FS solution yet, but we are closer -- a number of changes are in the works, that when combined, will make it possible to set part names and colors in FS.

    Bumping this thread. Is this still the best way? Very much looking forward to a FS solution.

    The state is still unchanged but we're very close to releasing this ability.
