Weldment cut list that ignores holes

     I am working with Solidworks 2013 and I'm wondering if there is a way to have my weldment cut list define the cut items referencing the bounding box only. I have a frame that has members that are identical in size, length and coping but they all have different hole patterns in them. Of course in my cut list they all show as different items. I would like to be able to have a cut list that groups the members by size only to give to my saw operator. Then I can do separate drawings of the individual members with hole dimensions. In the attached picture, you will see what I'm getting. The 3 members are the same size and length and coped the same but each one has different holes thus making it different. A cut list that would ignore all attributes except for the bounding box dimensions would be greatly helpful
