hello im a newbie

 

Im using the create bounding box command on a cut list and then using the properties created in a weldment cutlist table in my drawing.

This worked perfect the first time I tried it

so I was really excited that here was a nice easy way for me to generate a cutting list for all the parts in my assembly.  The next two parts I tried though it didn't work and some of the values are 1000 times too big

Ive tried everything I could think of and have searched to the best of my ability but haven't seen anyone else with this problem, maybe its a bug.

hope someone can help, thanks in advance
