Part Configuration Grouping and Toolbox Parts

Question asked by Mark Hagan on Feb 26, 2014

I have a BOM which consists of a variety of toolbox screws with configurations (different parts). In addtion to this, I have zip ties with multiple configurations, all of which are the same part, simply different diameters in which the zip tie may form to.



My question:


Is there anyway to maintain all the different toolbox configurations as seperate BOM line items, but make the zip tie a single line item regardless of its configuration?



Currently, using "Display configurations with the same name as one item" and "Display configurations of the same part as seperate items" maintains my toolbox configurations as seperate parts but also makes each zip tie diameter a different part.


On the other hand "Display all configurations of the same part as one item" makes my zip ties one line item, but all my different toolbox configurations one tem as well (unless of course they are different files)


I was hoping for some kind of suggestion, work around, whatever that anyone has come up with?

If there is another thread, I apologize in advance, I wasn't even sure how to search for this.


Thanks in advance.
