Get weldment BOM with each material(not body) and their total length.

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)



SP1Standard part 12
Weld1Custom Weldment1
     weld1.1Square Tube15.25'
     weld1.2Round Tube6.5'
     weld1.3Rect. Bar26.75'




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?
