I have an assembly with some fragile parts and we need to ship it somewhere. We've found a vendor that will take solidworks files and make foam inserts out of them!!! Anyways I have the assembly layout in the way that we would like to case it and pack it but I'm not quite sure how or if I can do what I want. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the deal: I have the assembly all layed out and what I'd like to do is create a part or feature at the assembly level and use some function to have it automatically remove material for where the parts are in the layout. Is this possible? If so is there a way to increase or decrease how much material is taken away around the parts in the layout?

Please help if anyone has any ideas???!!!???
