Is there a way to set the parameter "$NEVER_EXPAND_IN_BOM" from the custom properties tab?
I think the lesson here is to set the configuration property to "hide" children in my assembly template since that is what I want the majority of the time.
Can you give some omre details on what exactly you are trying to do?
Are you talking about from the property tab builder or the file properties?
Also what are you wanting this to do in the BOM?
Are you possibly talking about something like this?
I download a lot of subassemblies from SMC, Omron etc. I want a quick way hide child components for purchased parts. Having to go to the configuration properties seems way too involved. I know I can hide children from a parent BOM. But, I want this setting to be pervasive for those purchased parts for the next project. The quickest way I see would be to have a check box in the property tab builder so I don't have to open the sub-assembly (SMC cylinder or Omron PLC) and click X number of times to set it in the configuration properties. I have my own sub-assemblies that I DO want children to show.
You can hide individual line items in the BOM by RCing on the line and selecting hide if this is an option.
Other then that I would do the configurations.
I think that is the best option as well. May not be the ideal solution you were looking for, but it does give you
the results you are looking for (I think).
