PDM and Solidworks' Bounding Box dimensions

Hi There,

 

I couldn't find any topics or user experiences about the use of Bounding Box dimensions in PDM.

 

I could imagine it could be useful to have the dimensions of the bounding box be automically entered in the File Data Card.

 

If these dimensions will be tied to certain Variables throug the FDC and an engineer uses  a search tool to find a block with dimension xyz this block can be found by those dimensions. Possibly with the use of greater than or smaller as or equeal to wildcards.

 

Has anyone experience with such a method, or experience with automatic input of dimenions to speed up File Data Card input. And is such an idea recommended use...

 

kind regards!
