Document Manager - STEP, Bounding Box

Hi all, I'm hoping to confirm a couple of limitations regarding the Document Manager API (C#).


Is it possible, using only the Document Manager API to... 
...convert a SLDPRT into a STEP (or any other neutral CAD file type)?

...get the Bounding Box information of subassemblies and parts?


I'm fairly certain the above two operations aren't supported by the Document Manager API. I have been pecking around for them today in the documentation / on google without finding much of anything. However, I'd feel better getting confirmation from a "pro-all-star" Document Manager API user before I dismiss being able to use the Document Manager in the above ways.


I'm trying to figure out if there are any creative options to convert SLDPRT files to STEP without working directly through a SldWorks session.


Reason I want to avoid using a Solidworks session for this is due to speed and inability to run parallel, headless sessions of Solidworks. Will deal with it though if it's the only viable option in town.


Thank you for any information or recommendations.
