I have a problem that I hope someone out there may have solved and
would be willing to help me out with.
A three sheet drawing where the first sheet has assembled views of a
weldment. The weldment has two side plates and three center gussets.
When the BOM is placed on this sheet the quantities shown match the
actual quantities. The second and third sheets are detailed views of
the machined parts used in the weldment. When a BOM is placed on the
detail sheet, it lists the quantity as one since there is only one
part on that sheet. I want it to list the quantity of parts needed for
This is an over simplified example of our real world problem. We may
actually have a sixteen sheet drawing to detail out a fifteen part
weldment. The work around of having the entire weldment on the detail
sheets and hiding all but one part will not work for overhead reasons.
Does anyone have a tool that takes the part quantites from the first
sheet's BOM and will work with 2004?
Thanks in advance
