    Cut list - Body aggregation algorithm tolerance

    Alexandre Gragnano

      Hi,

      In cut lists, the body aggregation algorithm has some tolerance issues that aggregate 2 different bodies in a single cut list folder.

       

      2 rebar equal bodies:

      Left rebar - top end:

      Top rebar - left end:

      Left rebar - top end - 45° conical surface:

      Top rebar - left end - 3° conical surface:

      Feature tree view - body sorting:

      SolidWorks has a parameter "Cut List Sorting Options" > "Collect Identical Bodies" which doesn't help me.

      Historically, I use this technique to differentiate 2 bodies of similar geometry which should not be grouped in BOM.

      The amount of body forces me to keep the automatic sort feature, but in this case, I cannot.

      There is a way to modify this aggregation geometric tolerance or a hack to solve this problem?
