Exporting configuration BOM issues

Hello guys!


Long story short. We have complicated app for design automation. 3D model gets created by pushing parameters from .NET app via API.

Master Model has 12 configurations. Default - complete model. RHDOOR - right door and so on.


So the mechanism working by iterating through configurations and exporting configuration specific BOM to *.csv file. App opens Master Model drawing template, adds configuration specific BOM :


swBOMAnn = swView.InsertBomTable4(True, 0, 0, AnchorType, BomType, cfg, tableTemplate, False, swNumberingType_e.swNumberingType_Detailed, True) 


Then app reads it from SW into array, sorts it, saves it ..... same for other 12 configurations.


The problem:


Its supposed to be (4) A-00047 for the entire assembly. (2) for LHDOOR configuration and (2) for RHDOOR configuration.


We noticed when creating the BOM some of the assemblies don`t show sub-parts see below: We have 2 identical instances of part A-00047. One shows sub-parts the other one doesn`t. That basically screws over our BOM and part counts.



When we switch configuration to Default (All components together). I can see all of them: (see item 3 -  QTY - 4..



Any help appreciated.
