Here's my situation / wish:
I have an assembly of parts that I need to square up blocks for. All
the blocks have rectangular (no turned parts) envelopes with some
features in them (holes, a cutout, etc).
Does anyone have any tools or ideas on how one might use the BOM or
mass props or whatever to determine the bounding cubes (ok
rectangleoids or whatever) to determine a squaring list?
I'm looking for something like the cut list on the weldments. Mind
you, this is not a weldment, so some of the modeling pre-requisites
for a cut list are not in the parts, nor do I want them to be.
Simplistically, every part has a bounding cube and I would like to
find a way to take an assembly, insert a table with the right
properties and get an XYZ squaring list for the parts. I can
presently generate this list by measuring the parts:I'm looking for a
way to get this list automatically.
Thanks for any hints, tips or ideas.
