Auto Surface Feature

I know I am way out there this time but please hear me out.  Please add a surface type auto feature.  No matter the surface I want to be able to create an adaptive scan similar to an auto plane adaptive scan feature, such as perimeter, free form, or teach path.  For example, (bad example but here it is) I don't necessarily want to create a cylinder on a radius surface I want to create an auto surface feature but I don't want it to be constrained to the cylinder parameters I want it to be able to be treated the same as I would create a plane adaptive scan.  Another example would be irregular surface geometry. The reasoning is I want to be able to go through a part and create auto features instead of generic scan features to report the profile of each surface.  I think it could be a valuable tool.  Thank you!  

This is not so out there. The same idea has been discussed internally. It will be interesting to see what interest this request gathers.

Thanks for requesting it.

Yes! An autofeature "bag of points" is something that has come up in our discussions with customers, too.
