Renaming Virtual Parts in an Assembly

Question asked by Mukesh Prasad on May 18, 2012

I have an assembly that has a bunch of virtual parts that I need to show up in the BOM in the Drawing. Currently the displayed name of these components has its assembly part number as part of the name in the Feature Manager tree. I've renamed the components but the owning assembly number is still displayed. How can I get rid of the owning assembly number and still keep the part virtual?

 

EDIT: I updated the Property for item 1 to show P/N as N/A (since there is no P/N, and add the desctiption of the part under Name under the Custom Properties tab of the part. This updated my BOM as I wanted and I did not had to manually update the BOM Template in the drawing. In the attached drawing, Item 1 is Virtual and the Pem Standoffs are external part.
