The solutions that I have found to get an assembly bom on an assembly drawing are:
1. insert an assembly into an assembly.
2. make a virtual part or derived part.
3. make extra fields in the part and have the BOM column look at alternative iproperty fields.
In a part file that has a family table I want the configurations of some casted parts and some machined parts. the casted parts will have a drawing but no BOM, the machined parts will have a drawing and a BOM.
Then in an assembly file that has a family table I want configurations that use the configurations of the part file. Each of these assemblies will have a drawing that has a BOM that will call out the part that is is made from.
i aplogize, 2012.
In other words I will have a casting that will be machined so I will need a casting drawing and a machine drawing that has a BOM telling what casting to use.
Is there any easy way to do this.
On top of that when I try to make a family table in an assembly I get a message "THE BILL OF MATERIALS CONTAINS VIEWS OR PROPERTIES NOT SUPPORTED BE CONFIGURATIONS. OONLY STRUCTURED FIRST LEVEL BOM VIEWS ARE SUPPORTED. THE BOM WILL BE CHANGED DURING CONVERSION".
I do not know what i changed so I do not know how to correct it.
