There are some nice functionalities in customizing BOM using equations.
I'm looking for a way to customize BOM in SW2017 where "Item No." would also reflect the type of material at front of it .The combined value is linked to balloons and will be presented in drawing views.(see pics.).
Here are some steps that were already done
- the new property ( material type) was added as a Custom property for each part used in assembly.
- a new property was added to a new column into BOM table and located next to "ItemNo".
- The value from material type was typed-in manually to "ItemNo" cell .
I wonder if the combined "ItemNo" value can be done automatically. So far, all my efforts to merge (2) properties that are linked to balloons were unsuccessful.
