My assembly drawing BOM is not numbering the parts correctly. In the Bill of Materials editing, I have selected Structured View, and expanded the subassemblies. When I go back to edit the parts list from the drawing, I expanded the subassemblies so that the subassembly number and the parts in the subassembly are visible and should show as parts 9, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4, 9.5, 10, 11 etc. In the posted example, I have three subassemblies and two are correct, but the parts in yellow (Inventor highlighted them all on its own???) are not correct now. One is a subassembly number and some of the highlighted parts are subassembly parts.
Is there a way to renumber the BOM parts list and it keep the subassembly part numbering?
If there is a subassembly not showing correctly is there a way to fix it?
I tried that, many times, trying different settings, different changes, etc. Nothing worked.
WELL, try this way.
open your bom in the assembly file. disable bom and save, exit.
open assembly file again, enable bom and create part list again.
i guess most likely you press wrong key when you rearrange partslist. there is nothing wrong with inventor.
I disabled the BOM view.
I saved the part.
I closed the part.
I restarted Inventor.
I opened the drawing.
I put the parts list on the drawing again.
I followed the attached procedure, which I have used for months.
Still, I get the same result.
The steps I used haven't changed, so I'm a bit confused as to what has happened.
well, have you tried those steps i wront down?
that should reset BOM in assembly file.
like i mentioned before, you press wrong button or key carelessly when you rearrange your partslist.
in your procedure, it doesnt ask you to renumber partslist.
Yellow item numbers indicate duplicate item numbers.
You can try renumber the BOM:
- Open BOM by RMC on parts list, Bill of Materials…
- Go to Structured tab
- Expand subassembly with wrong numbers
- Click renumber button at BOM toolbar (4th icon from the left)
- Click ok in the dialog.
BOM should be renumbered including expanded subassembly items and parts list should update automatically.
I will try it when I get a chance.
