    Same belt shows up as two seperate items on BOM

    Theo Holtzhausen

      Does anybody know how to make multiple belts that are made with the belt/chain feature to show up as one item on the BOM? Sometimes I use the same length belt in different places and I would like them to show up as one item on the BOM. I also had this issue when creating an opposite hand assembly using the mirror feature - even though the "create opposite hand version" option is turned off for the belt model, it still creates a copy. I assume this is because the belt is actually a feature of the assembly which has this option turned on. The belt/chain feature is a great tool and I've been using it like it's going out of style, but now I have a bunch of belts with quantity one on my BOM's and they're actually the same part.

       

      Thanks,

      Theo
