Note:

  1. If part names are same for more than one part, successive names of parts are indexed with number.

    For example, if there are 3 parts with same name 'Cylinder', then

    • very first part in the product tree is named as 'Cylinder'

    • second part is named as 'Cylinder : 1'

    • third part is named as 'Cylinder : 2'

     

  2. Renaming of part names does not affect part list module. Part list panel displays old names only.

    To avoid this issue, rename the parts and save into a new cax file. Open the saved file and notice that part list panel displays the parts with new names.
