Bounding Box

Anyone know of a way to use the results of the model size measurement
(bounding box) in a relation or analysis feature? I need to have the overall
size of an assembly returned as a value, preferably in the 3 axes.
Thanks.

I don't know if you can do it the way you say, but you can slap datum curves
along the extents of the model, align them to the model extents and
dimension them (the dimensions will appear as extras) then use relations to
push the dimensions into parameters which you can use.
This is not a robust method, there must be a more elegant way to achieve
this

I dont know if there's a way to do that within the confines of Pro/E
features, but there's routines within ProToolkit which return X,Y,Z
values of the 2 points you see connected by the line of the bounding
box diagonal,, and those XYZ points are orientated to a defined CSYS
from within the function call..

That's basically what I'm looking for, I'll have to look into the Toolkit
functions then.
My situation has the top-level model constantly adding and removing
sub-assemblies and re-orienting the ones that remain, so using pre-defined
points and/or curves seems a little intricate.
Thanks guys.

bounding box/bounding box intersection.
Hi guys, thanks so much for your recent help with my collision detection problems. I just have one more thing then I think I've got all I need to start coding it up. I have two Axis Aligned Bounding Boxes. One is stationary. One is moving (the reason for this is that it simplifies things - 2 boxes moving relative to each other can be considered as one stationary and the other moving) I have 2 questions, but 2 is more important cos it assumes you know the answer to 1) Now I have a "velocity vector" for the moving box (i.e it moves in a certain direction ...
