Three enhancements I would like to see in relation to multibodies and make components
1) Enhance the multibody tool with the ability to choose specific parameters, sketches, work features you wish to export in to each solid you are making. I.e. a part file has multiple thicknesses being uses for different solids, I only want the relevant thickness parameter to go to the relevant solid(s). This would be very cool.
Also add the ability to set derive options in the make components dialogue instead of having to edit each part after you have used make components! I.e. user wants to set colour in part: this means I have to open part edit derived part and uncheck 'use colour override from source object'
2) Part extents (Length, width, thickness) in part file.
I want to create a cutting list from parts that have been created from multibodies or in general standard part file. Sheet metal extents can extract length and width. Can’t this feature be included within standard parts and the make components tool?
