Using the weldment bounding box with multibody parts

Good morning,

 

I am trying to use for a lack of a better term the weldment workaround for creating a bounding box.  It works fine when I have a individual part file but I am running into problems when working with multibody parts.

 

This is the workaround that I am trying to use.  I create a new part from scratch and then turn it into a weldment.  I then RMB the cut list and select update,  then I RMB the cut list item and create a bounding box around it.

 

If I create a multibody part and save each body into a new part file this does not work.  The only way I can seem to get the result I am looking for is to save the split body out as a parasolid and open it as an imported body.  That kind of defeats the purpsose of maintaing a link to the original multibody part though.  Does anyone have a workaround for this other than a macro?

 

Thanks,

 

Ian
