How do I create the silhouette of an assembly

I'd like to get an outline, or silhouette, of a high-part-count assembly, but "Split Line" under Curves, is grayed out.

 

I tried saving the assembly as a part, but when I select all the bodies during the Silhouette Split Line command, I get a "Faces must belong to the same Body" error. And if I try to Combine all the bodies first, I get a bunch of "Zero thickness" complaints.

 

I've done the major PITA of making a dwg of the slddrw, and then making a polyline of the outline in Autocad, but I was hoping for a much more elegant method directly.

 

Thanks for the help!
