cut list to show name of weldment? (Wood dimensions)

Hi there,


So I started using weldments for our dock/marina design and its working out really well for the past few days. My last little hiccup is that when I make a drawing and go to propogate a cutlist I get a list of all these weldments but there's no way to differentiate them. they are simply just listed 1-76, and have lengths beside them.


I could do a section view one layer of the project at a time, balloon it and cut list it.


However, for speed and simply just getting a lumber count it would be nice to just produce a huge cut list, and know how many 6x8's or 8x8'. etc we will need at a given length.


What I have done to get me here:


Simply made custom weldment profiles (6x6, 8x8, 2x4's) etc. If I could somehow get the BOM/Cutlist to tell me WHICH weldment profile I used in a column it would solve all my issues.


This simply has to be possible lol. Seems pretty basic - I just am not sure how to set it up.


Thanks and all the best.


I attached the project for everyone to take a look at. As you can see - doing this 1 part at a time and just making a giant assembly would (and does) take forever. It was how I was doing things previously.
