Costing the machining of castings

Question asked by Valerio Valentini on Mar 15, 2014

The title is self explanatory.  How can I select something other than block, plate or cylinder when selecting the stock body in costing?  Ideally, I would want to drop a body representing the raw casting into a new blank part, create the machining operations as features in the new part, and evaluate costing for only those features present in the new part.  I haven't found any way of doing this in the SolidWorks 2014 SP02 costing.  Any idea if and when such funcitonality will be available?
