VL motion - Can a motion body consist of several Catparts?

Newbie question: I want to make a forklift chassis consisting of many Catparts with no movement between them. Is it possible to make one body out of many Catparts or is the rule one body - one Catpart? In that case is it possible to name a group of bodies?

Yes this is possible.  When defining a new body in the Mechanism workbench use the option to define a body from an existing part.  Prior to this all the CATParts will need to be organized under a single product or component.  The body will then refer to this product or component for it's definition, then everything under this will be considers as a single rigid body.
