Assembly as single part

   This is my first post on this forum. My knowledge with SolidWorks is limited but I am tasked to get assemblies converted to single part files so that I can see assembly level machining cuts on the part file itself which will be saved as a .SLDPRT


   Now I know that I can do a save as a part for the assembly but in my case the assembly has assembly level machining cuts which are left out if I do a simple save as part. I looked at this link and this does help me go one step forward but I think this works well with simple assemblies.


   I tried to work with two subcomponentsand having a assembly level cut,  I had to change 'Future Scope' from 'Selected Components' to 'All Components' to ensure the machining cut was transferred over correctly. Please see the screeenshot







When I tried to replicate the same a complex assembly it did not work, one of the reason I could see was this; in the last step from the link it mentions how to join parts but not necessarliy sub-assemblies that might be present. Could any body help me with this? In a nut shell I would like to have all the assembly level machining cuts transfered to a part file.
