When properly done the BOM works quite well, though custom parameters assigned to parts may not always show up. It compiles a list of all items and sorts it nicely per length etc. but this is for all objects within the final assembly
Is it possible to have the BOM list the items grouped by subassembly?
I haven't been able to find it yet.
E.g. it would look like this:
Assembly items (not within subassemblies)
Subassembly 1 items
Subassembly 2 items
Subsubassembly 2 items
Subassembly 3 items
I realise you can achieve something similar by creating BOM's in each subassembly drawing and then combine the tables in Excel and paste that back in the final assembly layout but it would be quite useful if it could be done in the final assembly so that the list is generated in one go so that whenever there are updates you don't have to redo the compiling of individual BOM's into a single BOM after every update.
