    Working with EPDM BOM's

    Seth Ruhan



      Retrieving and reading the BOM is all very simple.

      My code is basically the same as used in the post https://forum.solidworks.com/docs/DOC-1148


      The BOM I create is basically artificial, With Quantities modified based on other inputs.


      For my operations I need to understand their level in the tree, when getting the computed BOM it returns all items in a flat tree.

      This leaves it impossible to tell the hierarchy and where sub drawings are used. This really becomes an issue when a part is used in as a sub assembly and also in the Main assembly, as I can only detect the part not the location is in the tree.


      Is there a way to either detect what the hierarchy is, or the get top Level BOM?



      Thanks for your help
