Understanding Regeneration and Auto Regeneration

Regenerating a model recalculates the model geometry,
incorporating any changes made since the last time the model
was saved or regenerated.
• Auto Regenerate automatically
regenerates the model while you edit
it.
– Orange preview geometry displays.
– Auto Regenerate is enabled by
default.
• You can toggle Auto Regenerate off.
– Preview geometry is turned off.
– Dimensions can be directly edited
only.
– Draggers are toggled off.

When you edit features in Creo Parametric, you are editing dimension
values which control the geometry. After you edit a feature’s dimensions, the
Regenerate
function recalculates the model geometry, incorporating any
changes made since the last time the model was saved or regenerated. It is
necessary to regenerate a model after you have edited it.
Auto Regenerate eliminates the need to regenerate the model after making
changes. Rather, the model is automatically regenerated dynamically while
models are edited.
By default, Auto Regenerate is enabled. However, if you wish to make
multiple changes to a feature or features before regenerating the model,
you can toggle Auto Regenerate off temporarily. When Auto Regenerate
is toggled off, you can only edit dimensions directly, and all draggers are
toggled off. You also cannot drag section entities.
When you are ready for the model to regenerate, toggle Auto Regenerate
back on.
