Hi folks.

Just been mucking about with something and now I have a question.

If you create two separate structural members (not touching) within a single part file and then create a drawing from the part file, you are able to create either a BOM or cut list within the drawing and it will display a line item for each member. The question I have is how to get the list(s) to correctly display the 'Description' of each of the members. Given that this is a 'Part' file, essentially a part can only have one description so using the description configuration is not the answer obviously. I was kinda hoping I could use this sort of method and still accurately display a full list, description, length, weight etc. for each item.


Is it even possible via a 'Part' file?


I can create drawings and lists for normal everyday parts and assemblies, but I was curious as to whether or not this method is viable.
