Thanks in advance
This may be helpful as well. I do not have SW2018 so I can't verify but it does say you can save your assembly as a Solid Part to generate a bounding box for the assembly.
Have you Googled?
Create a bounding box for parts and assemblies - YouTube
Yah I'm not using a pirated version of Solidworks from 2013, but thanks for trying.
The Insert -> Reference Geometry -> 3D Bounding Box feature is gone so anyone other than Mr Lin know where/how to get this feature to work on an assembly within SW '18 Premium?
Have you tried google?
Maybe you should put that box you want so bad over your head.
Yea? And maybe you shouldn't lurk threads with no intention of helping. Unlike you, I have a legitimate question, which has no solution, only a bandaid workaround(See below.)
My God, you'd think that a professional company like Dassault wouldn't tolerate people trying(and failing) to derail threads...go do something with yourself Bill. Really
well Joe. Your attitude sucks. Next time try google.
Joe, are your components within the assembly generated from a "cut list"?
I only ask because they appear to be component driven and I'm unsure of whether or not the "box" can be applied to an assembly or not. I have never used Bounding Boxes for anything myself, just asking the question to put it out there.
Oh sweet because saving extremely large assemblies as part files is so fun. I can't wait!
An automatic way can give you an undesirable result (wrong alignment).
Just create parallelepiped in the 3d sketch mode in Bounding Box part and insert it in your assembly, position it as you wish and correct 3 dimensions.
