After the paste special from the previous object, the histories or activities that used to create the 3d part are removed. The 3d data will appear as a datum solid. Datum solid means the link is broken from the previous 3d data. How to capture back the activity so that it can be edited and parameterized? Lets go through the steps to do it as below.

2. Click on icon named Automatic Features Recognition image7 . Check the Local Feature Recognition.



3. Select All under the Feature.



4. Select all the faces of the solid. Then click on Apply.
