Solidworks assembly into solid part

I have an IGES file from a vendor that is an assembly of several parts. I opened it in SW and have an assembly with several dumb solid models. This is a part we purchase and add to the top assembly just like a bolt or nut so I don't need the many small parts that all have part numbers different then ours.

I thought there was a way I could take this SW assembly or IGES assembly and save it as one dumb solid rather than as a multi-part assembly but none of the SAVE AS PART functions work for this.


I don't want to have to track all the many small parts to this buy-and-use assembly.


Does anyone know how to turn an assembly into a single part solid?


Thank you.
