    Boolean subtract question

    Scott Lake

      I have a very simple 2 part assembly that I would like to use the 2nd part to subtract from the first.  I want to do this as an assembly rather than combining bodies in a part file because I want to be able to use mates with the two different parts to control their interface angle and positions, and to be able to independently edit the sketches/features in the two parts.


      Is there a subtract/combine bodies feature in SW Assemblies?  I cannot find it if so.  I'm rather new to SW, have taken the Essentials course and just now trying to make use of it at my company.


      Thanks for your patience and any help you can provide.
