Bounding box with API?

I've seen a lot of posts about bounding boxes.  I have tried a dozen (or more) macros.  Does anyone have a macro that can actually get an accurate bounding box, even if the part was drawn at some goofy orientation?

 

We import files created in other programs by other companies.  I need to collect accurate bounding box dimensions with the a macro so I can: open all the files, get the info, then export the part on new coordinate system based on the bounding box.

 

You would think all that other stuff is the hard part, but the bounding box has been the real challenge.  I have attached a simple part that should prove somewhat difficult.

 

Thank you.
