I'm curious as to how other people handle this situation.
I have an assembly where the main body is two halves of a part that starts as a single piece.
In the picture the body is the yellow part.
The way it's modeled is the same as the way the part is manufactured.
It starts as a single rectangular block, it is machined, then cut in half.
In the model I have a configuration for each half.
The issue I have when creating an assembly drawing is that the bill of material shows each half as a separate item number, each quantity 1.
I would like to have the BOM show the body as a single item, qty. 1.
With the BOM options available I can get; One item qty 2, or Two items qty 1, but not One item qty 1.
In this particular case just editing the quantities in the BOM, is a reasonable enough workaround.
That said, I really hate manually changing any info that is automatically generated by SW.
Does anyone else have to deal with a similar situation?
