    Identical Parts Created in Assembly Appear Separately in BOM

    Dominic Monette

      Hi all,

       

      I recently made an assembly drawing for an assembly I have been working on. I had decided to create two parts directly in the assembly, instead of creating them prior then importing them into the assembly.

      Both parts are identical, and they both have the same information in the custom properties section (i.e. same description, same part number, etc.). When inserting the BOM in the assembly drawing, I noticed that both parts show up as different items (see pictures). I assumed they would show up as the same item with a quantity of 2, so I am not quite sure why this happened.

      Does anyone know why this is happening? Is there any way to make the BOM show the part number once, but with the appropriate quantity?

       

      Thanks for the help!
