When you have a BOM with a mix of normal parts and cut-list parts, is there a way to change the cut list into 'parts'? WHILE keeping it linked to the part/weldment file?
I ask this because I want to be able to keep those links, but also want to put everything into a certain order. I can't really move cut-list BOM entries like part and assembly listing. I solved this partially by unlinking the BOM and manually editing BOM entries, but I lose the link to the cut-list parts when I do that.
Yes and No. Yes, read up on Dissolving a Subassembly or Weldment in BOMs in the SolidWorks help. No, sometimes SolidWorks will combine items you do not want combined. I only just learned of this so I have not had a chance to explore all the functionality and 'bugs'.
