You are able to insert the design table into the drawing, if this has all the information you require, such as part numbers etc. You can these in if they are not already available. The issue you have with a BOM is that it specifically asks for a configuration to be based on.
hope this helps,
Thank you for the tip! However, I have tried that as well. I just found that it requires a lot of formatting and hiding of columns. The final table also looks sloppy on the drawing, compared with our standard BOM format. And since I need to do this for 20+ parts it would be nice to have a template (such as a BOM).
I see two ways of doing this. Both I consider manual methods and not as elegant as it could be.
1. Create an assembly of your part using just one instance of your part. Then create an assembly configuration for each part config making sure that the part's configuration matches the assembly. Go to 3.
2. Create an assembly and insert as many parts as you want to show configurations; then change each part to a specific configuration. Hide all parts except for one, the one that will be in you drawing. Go to 3. I found a video that does this nicely.
3. Now in your drawing, insert a view of the assembly and use this view when you create a BOM. Hide the columns you don't want. (There will be many columns added that junk.. I don't know how to automatically hide them other then: select a group and right click HIDE SELECTED).
Hope this helps,
I had the same question this morning and stumbled upon it by accident.
1. Add Assembly View; (duh)
2. Add BOM; (ditto)
3. Double-click on the column header labeled with the letter, not the text;
4. A dialog box shows up with check boxes for all the available configurations;
5. Set a check in the check box(es) for the configuration(s) you want shown;
6. For each box with a check mark, a column will appear with "Configuration Name/QTY".
Number 3 should say 'Double-click on the QTY column header..."
Sorry, when I saw BOM, I assumed an Assembly drawing.
