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?
