BOM Settings for Drawings

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.

 

Please help with any solutions.

 

THANKS!

If you can get away with assembly features for your machining

 

Create your casting IPT

Place it into a IAM and use Assembly features for your machining to get your finished part.

You BOM will show the casting blank.

 

This is nice if you have a couple of different finished machined parts from the same casting, as all the assembly features stay within the IAM and don't propagate back to the IPT casting.

 

If you change the properties of each feature, you can make the appearance look machined were you have made the material feature cuts.
