|Summary||0001333: Extruding a shape "MyShape" should call solid "Extruded from MyShape"|
|Description||Currently, when I extrude a named shape, the extruded solid is called "Extruded" or "Extruded001". It would be a better default behaviour to call it "Extruded from MyShape" where MyShape is the name of the Shape.|
Current behaviour requires to spend much time in renaming.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||I disagree. No parametric CAD software that I know of (Catia, SolidWorks, Inventor, Pro Engineer, NX, Solid Edge) does what you are asking. They *all* do what FreeCAD does in respect to feature labels. I would certainly not want such extremely long labels as "Extruded from MyShape".|
||You may have noticed that the source shape becomes a child object of the extrusion object in the tree view. Wouldn't it be a kind of tautology if e.g. the source shape is called "Plane" and the extrusion "Extruded from Plane"? Also what if you rename "Plane" afterwards?|
> They *all* do what FreeCAD does
Knowing that Catia, SolidWorks and family behave the same is IMO not a reason for not doing something. FreeCAD is allowed to be better than other softwares and to implement some stuff differently if it makes sense.
> I would certainly not want such extremely long labels as "Extruded from MyShape".
I can understand that, what about "MyShape (Extruded)".
> You may have noticed that the source shape becomes a child object of the extrusion object in the tree view.
Yes, I've noticed this, but as the tree quickly gets huge, I generally find it easier to collapse most nodes. So in that case, only the label of the extruded part is shown.
> Also what if you rename "Plane" afterwards?
IMO, if user renames "Plane" afterwards, it's ok if he has rename the Extruded Plane as well.
In this report, it's just about the default name after extrusion that should IMO be smarter and more helpful.
||In the preferences there is now an option to add the base name which is off by default. At the moment this only works for the extrusion but can be implemented for other operations, too.|
