1. While saving the Assembly file as a Part , Select "All Component" Option and Click Save. So Components in the Assembly will save as Imported.
2. We can't able to feature Recognition in this part. So, Select one body and Right Click it, Click Add to new part. Single imported body will save in new part as a Stock File.
3. Then again we have to save that file in IGES Format. So now you can able to Convert that Solid Body into Features.
I hope this is the way to use feature Recognition in this scenario.
I was away for a day and I wasn't able to check your solution. thanks for taking your time and trying help.
On your step 2, after right clicking a body, there is no Add To New Part context menu.
I have add to new folder and add to favorite but no add to new part.
I'm on Solidworks 2015 Sp1.1
You need a solid body model for feature recognition. Last I checked though, SW's feature recognition wasn't too great anyhow.
Yes I know, that feature recognition is not that useful. I was just wondering why I can't use it in this case.
