Another weldment cutlist qty question

Try to generate a BOM for purchasing to order tubes.

Instead of a drawing and count for each frames, I want to combine them in one drawing.Cutlist01.jpg

In a BOM with detail cutlist, the tube qty is per assembly. Is there anyway to get it to show total qty?

Like the 'Assembly QTY' I manually type in? Or like a 'Part only' BOM?

Of course I want it to update 'automagically' when the frame change.


The weldment is an multibody part. Saving it out as parts and reassemble would solve this problem but will be lots of work when the frame changes with adding and removing members.


The only usable solution is drawing for each frame with qty to order. Let the purchaser count.


BTW I read through this (Add Weldment Functionality to Assemblies ) already and a few more.
