Changing Feature ID's

Does anyone know if it's possible to change a feature ID within a model and have NX reidentify the rest? I want to swap geometry within a model and hoping there's a way to have specific surfaces carry the same ID as the original geometry so the assemblies that carry this part don't loose reference to the surfaces that are changed. The surfaces would remain the same type such as cylinders would still be cylinders and so on.

If you assign a user-defined name to a face, when you reference that face it will use that name instead of actual ID.  Therefore all you have to do is create your new part and assign that same user-defined name to the face of interest.

Interesting, that's good to know! Thanks!
If this is after the fact do you have a work around if the assembly is already released and referencing the face that doesn't have a name?
Thanks!
