Creating Part Bounding Box

Question asked by Jason Young on Dec 19, 2019

Why do parts not have a bounding box, or overall dimensions; applied by default?

 

At the moment I am having to create a bounding box to use within a cut-list.

Solidworks must know these dimensions because it can apply a volume and a mass to the part.

Is there a way to drag these through without having to create the bounding box?

 

I have used a measure all macro, this does give the dimensions; but does not update with any alterations to the part, without re-running the macro, and as we have remote users/viewers of this data it needs to be real time.

 

Cheers in advance.
