Turn off automatic part spun outline and the resulting lathe cross-section

Siemens Pioneer Siemens Pioneer

I create my own cross section curves for 2D work (process dependent) but need the 3d geometry for milling...programming a mill-turn. I need to use only one WORKPIECE so that the IPW remains consistent throughout all operations, but once the component parts are added to the WORKPIECE the TURNING_WORKPIECE automatically updates with a Part Spun Outline/Lathe Cross-Section instead of my cross section curves that I created and need to use.

Is there a way to turn off the automatic creation of the Part Spun Outline/Lathe Cross-Section when component parts are added to the WORKPIECE? I looked in the Customer Defaults with no luck.

I would try changing "Part Spun Outline" option in Turning Workpiece to something else than Automatic:

Thank you Marek, I did not have that option as the part was created using an old template. Updated the part to the newer templates and all is good.
