Is it possible to limit the BOM of my eAssembly to show only the top end parts? I don't necessarily want people to be able to drill down into inseparable assemblies (weldments) or purchased assemblies.
It looks to me that this is SW Weldment issue.
The way you can deal with it: save your Weldment as Part and replace Weldment with Part in Top Level Assembly
Click the pan icon in the upper left corner of an existing bill of materials.
Top-level only. List parts and sub-assemblies, but not sub-assembly components.
This seems to do the trick in an SLDASM file, but I'm looking to limit the BOM to top-level only in the edrawings assembly. There doesn't seem to be an option when I go SaveAs and look at the options, it doesn't seem to be a thing.
If BOM is Top Level only:
On E-drawing will be shown the same Top Level BOM
In SolidWorks you're totally right. I can easily limit the BOM.
My issue is in eDrawings. In this image -001 is a weldment and I don't want to get people access to the parts inside. -002 onwards are subassemblies that I do want to make expandable. It sounds like this might not be possible though.
That's what I was thinking.
To keep the original assembly for yourself you may create an extra assembly configuration where weldment is suppressed part represented weldment is shown
