Derived parts in BOM?

Question asked by Matthew Dyke on Nov 19, 2015

Hi

 

I am trying to create a BOM in Solidworks that includes derived parts. For example, if I have a housing, I want it to show the cast, machined and painted parts. I have tried doing this using configurations and derived parts, both have not worked. The only other thing I can think of is having configurations for each stage and then putting them into sub assemblies although this is far from ideal. Here's an example of what I want to achieve:

 

LevelPart
~2Housing, Painted
~~3Housing, Machined
~~~~4Housing, Cast

 

 

Thanks for any advice, Matt.
