I have two simple assemblies to include in one drawing but I need the BOM to include parts information from both assemblies without using the same Item Nos. How can this be done? Currently there are two BOMs but with overlapping Item Nos.
Insert both assemblies into a new assembly. Now create a BOM for the new assembly.
Like anything in SolidWorks, there is more than one way to do it...
First method, insert both assemblies into a "top" assembly, spaced apart from each other, then insert the "top" assembly into a drawing and insert BOM.
Second method, insert a veiw for each assembly, then insert two BOMs. In the second BOM's property manager, enter the starting item number to count up from.
As is usually the case, there was just one small item to change or do differently. Thanks. I did find the method to change the Item Nos. in the second BOM. That works great!
