Can you cut and extend an assembly?

This has been asked before but in a different context.


I have a reasonably complex weldment assembly of 80 different sheetmetal parts that has been fabricated and is in the field working.

However I need to to physically cut it in two, move it apart 50mm, add extra material and weld it all back together again.


I cant find any functions that can do this apart from creating cuts in different configurations and assembling them in another assembly.

I did wonder about saving it as a part, cut into two, move bodies then insert into a new assembly.


Does anyone have any suggestions of a better way?
