Correct place to re-name parts in Weldments

Hi All,

 

Not had to use Weldments much in the past, but looking to update a few old drawing's and have a small issue.

 

After creating the frame I need to re-name the section / plates to something I can relate to in the Feature Tree.

 

At present I am re-naming both the part and the feature (giving them the same name) in the Cut List

 

This way the name appears in the Feature Tree and shows in the list when I am in the Cut List Properties.

 

And also the correct name appears when Auto Assigning names when saving out bodies.

 

Is this the only / correct way of doing this, as I am changing info twice. Would you ever change the Beam / Plate info under Weldment (at the bottom of the Feature Tree). Or am I doing something wrong.

 

 

 

Thanks
