I have a BOM in a assembly drawing. All part quantities in the BOM are correct except for one part. For this one part, the parts mass is displayed in the quantity column. Does anyone know what going on here. I am using SW 2009 sp5.1
Rick, in the custom properties, you have the quantity field overridden, change it to "none".
Don't forget to change for both "Custom" and "Configuration Specific" tabs...
That should fix your problem.
Check that particular cell in the BOM or check that part properties if you have linked the mass to display in the BOM. And if any chance if you can attach that part here to investigate.
will you post that part file
Attached is the part in question
Open the part and go to file properties. Set BOM quantity to none (currently you have set it to show weight)
i deleted the custom property "CMPWT_Mass" in the part file and the BoM then showed the correct quantity. i then added the custom property "CMPWT_Mass" back in the part file and the BoM still works correctly?
Don't know why, but its working now.
Thanks for the help.
Edit: Looks like someone else gave you the answer while I was taking forever to type mine...
Without looking at your posted file, I think the issue might be pretty simple. If you have custom properties filled out for your part, then I'm guessing that you might have one of your custom properties (mass) assigned as your BOM quantity.
For example, I have a part with the following configuration properties tab:
If I click the "BOM Quantity" drop down and select "cut length" or "weight", then that value will be used in the quantity column when that component is part of an assembly bill of material.
I selected "cut length" (which is 1.5"), clicked "ok", and saved the part. Then I opened an assembly drawing with that part in it and looked at the BOM:
This is a pretty handy trick if you have items where the quantity isn't going to be instances (like needing wire lengths, or some volumetric measure for grease, for example).
Thanks to all that responded. The answer was right under my nose, I just needed someone to point my nose at it. The BOM quantity was overwritten.
