Explode it twice, making it a TC Surface object, and it'll have eight edit points.

Harry,

Thanks for the response.  I stumbled upon the solution that you suggest, but am left wondering why this should have been intuitive?  Why explode twice?

Harry,

First explosion converts the Box to an ACIS Solid. Second explosion turns it into a TC Surface. Third explosion gives six rectangular Polylines. Fourth explosion yields 24 Lines.
