    Promote property of Assembly Configuration

    Sugan Richard

      On the Assembly Configurations properties page, under Bill of Materials options window, SolidWorks provides three ways to define how a child component is displayed in the BOM.

      I am able to read those settings off an Assembly configuration using API


      But, I am looking for an equivalent API that works on offline files. Is this accessible through Document Manager API? I am open to work around. Any suggestion is much appreciated.

          By typing the word "promote" into the SolidWorks API Help (local version) you can see that there's nothing available for the Document Manager API, only the SolidWorks API:



          Therefore it appears you will have to use the SolidWorks API, unless there is some other characteristic unique to BOM's with promoted child components that could be detected via the Document Manager API. (I have no idea what that characteristic would be, however, since I don't know much about this aspect of BOMs.)
