I designed a mold base assembly in the emx. the cavity punch extract size (Pro/Moldesign assembly) was 400*400. after completely designing mold in emx i changed the cavity punch extract size in Pro/Moldesign to 300*300 but the moldbase size in emx did not changed.

now the emx should change the model size in the Assembly Definition dialog box accordingly as shown in the figure below

but it is not happening in this case. the emx is calculating the insert size to 400*400. it is also confirmed from the Cavity Cutout dialog box.

i have regenerated the assembly several times but of no use.

Thanks in advance.

uncheck the rect. insert box. You shouldn't have both of them checked even though the software allows it.
