I have an a 3 configuration assembly. I'm wanting to do one drawing with all 3 configs. The drawing views are of only one of the configs. When I insert the BOM (not excel based) I pick the 3 configs I want included. The 'same' part just different configs shows up as different item numbers. Let me explain a bit better, say it is a door assembly, the 3 configs are of different size doors. On the bill of material the 3 sizes are shown with the qty required for each config at the right end of the BOM. The problem is that the 3 configs are called items 1,2 & 3 which means when I place balloons I get just the item number for the door that is actually shown. I want the before mentioned items 1,2 & 3 to all be called out as item 1 (same part just different configs). I seem to remember doing this before using the SW BOM but for the life of me I can't get it to work now. I've think I've tried all the combinations of picks in the BOM properties dialogue. Can anyone help me?
