Really big struggle getting this figured out. Seems like it should be really simple.
I am going to make the example simple as possible:
I have a single welded part. The part contains 3 weldment profiles/materials 1 square tube,1 round tube, and 1 rectangle bar.
each profile selection creates 5 unique cutlist bodies.
without manually manipulating the cutlist on each part. (we do lots of custom weldments with 15-50 cutlist items each and manually editing is to time intensive)
I want a BOM that contains the total qty of each material without listing each cutlist item. one line for each material in that part.
Here is the kicker, I want it to pull this way from within an assembly. (BOM indented with detailed cutlist)
Example: Assembly contains 2 of a standard part (SP1) and one of my Weldment (Weld1)
|SP1||Standard part 1||2|
We had High hopes for a semblance of this with 2021 PDM pro BOM templates allowing cutlist in BOM... Our VAR is looking into getting that working correctly, but I am pretty sure the functionality isn't there.
Am I chasing the impossible or is this something that can be done?
