In a welded/machined single part file. One component is tube steel saw-cut down the axis. Cut list shows two identical parts & essentially this is true. However the tube is actually a single item to be ordered, just saw-cut during fabrication. How can SolidWorks be manipulated to show this tube as a single item?
This scenario comes up often with other components & can be troublesome when items get double-ordered.
The solution to this has eluded us here.
