One BOM drives multiple BOM in one drawing

Question asked by Alex Lachance on Apr 16, 2019

I was wondering if it was possible to have one BOM drive multiple BOMs in one drawing.

 

Here's an example. This is an air kit we are developping on SolidWorks for trailers. We have 4 pages, one overall, one to show the connections in the airbox, one with our ABS on it(has a BOM only reflecting ABS components), and one that is our overall BOM.

 

Overall

 

Air box:

 

ABS:

 

Overall BOM:

 

What we'd like is the BOM numbers from page ''ABS'' to reflect the BOM numbers from the ''Overall BOM''. I don't think you can do it without a macro right now, so my idea is to remove the BOM from the ABS page and have it be split in the overall page so that it is ''less confusing''.
