After the product designing process is done, the next step we normally do is designing the packaging. So what is the size?
For SOLIDWORKS, you can easily get your overall box dimension for your product ( both assemblies or component level) that will speed up your packaging design process.
In this article we will show you how to use bounding box and what will you get from it. We will use this model for this example.
Custom Plane: You can pick in which plane the bounding box will refer (i.e Top plane)
You can directly use these data for the overall dimension of the packaging. This bounding box features work for both assembly and part files. In this way, you can immediately get your product's overall dimensions for packaging purposes.
In assembly environment if you have bounding box associated for the part, sub-assemblies and top level assembly, it will be shown in different color.
