Multi config weldments, come on SW get it sorted

Ive been looking through the forums to find a solution to the problem below.

We need to get an SPR out for this.


Heres my problem, any suggestions?


I have a weldment with 2 configurations.

This item is a stand. It requires some temporary modifications for the initial installation which will be deleted a short time later. These mods are additional legs, beam extensions, and gussets.

We are building 2 of these stands and will be able to reuse the majority of the temporary parts from the first on the installation of the second.


So I have an “as manufactured” config and an “as finished” config.


I want to show the quantities of each body in a cut list form (in 2 columns is ok) for these 2 configs on a single sheet, preferably in a single cutlist.

The differences are, some bodies are different lengths; some are present in only 1 config or are of different quantities in each.

This will enable a quick addition of the 2 quantity columns to come up with a quantity for the whole project.


Each cutlist item has a custom prop “item no.” this should remain consistent across configs

Can this be displayed in a weldment cut list by adding a 2nd quantity column tied to a different config, or do I need to use a multi level BOM?


Ive attached a couple of pics.


All help appreicated.
