Create a analysis feature that will give you the bounding box size

Would like bounding box size option within the analysis feature.

Must have ability to create parameters for each of the 3 distances example: (height, width & length).

Would be nice if it could tell the difference between if the geometry was rectangular or round. If round provide parameters diameter & length.

 

The evaluation needs to be able to evaluate simplified rep of part and/or assembly.

 

Use case:

The parameters within the analysis could be used to establish bill of material parameters (part size for raw material purchases).

Assembly level can be used to establish packaging size requirements.

It should ignore datums and only use geometry when calculating the bounding box

Re: Create a analysis feature that will give you the bounding box size

This information in available in J-Link but it would be really nice to have it available in the analysis feature!

Re: Create a analysis feature that will give you the bounding box size

Even better, give us choice to use all geometry or just solid geometry (exclude surfaces)

Re: Create a analysis feature that will give you the bounding box size

There is a script inside the Startup TOOLS Parametermanager (from INNEO Genius TOOLS Family) that extract these values.

This article should be able to provide certain workaround:

This should have been included a looooooong time ago.

Re: Create a analysis feature that will give you the bounding box size

I've been needing this functionality since release 18......I do not understand why this would have not been addressed a decade ago.....I bet solid-works does this.....how can i order steel for manufacture if the system doesn't tell me the exact size i need to order?

I painstakingly have to go into each component and make ref. dimensions which works but is time consuming.
