Hello,

 

I just had teh same problem. The assemly where the 'parts only tab' was missing was an iAssembly. When I

converted it back to a normal assembly the tab rappeared again.

 

Let me know if this works.

 

Best regards

Hi! Currently, Inventor does not provide a Part Only BOM in an iAssembly factory. The only workaround available at this moment is open the member assembly file and break the link to the factory. Then, the Part Only view will become available. However, the member is no longer linked to the factory.

Thanks!

Is there a similar problem with the frame generator?

The restriction I mentioned above only apply to iAssembly. Any regular assembly should not have the restriction. Frame Generator assembly is not an iAssembly, so Part Only view should be available in BOM table.

Thanks!

Can you take a look at this assembly done with 2011? I went to a class a few weeks ago and wanted to see the new features of 2012 and the instructor was able to do it easily with 2012 by selecting "parts only" in the drop down of the BOM structure for the subassembly (items 4 and 5 on the idw). I am unable to find this drop down (only normal, inseparable, purchased, phantom and reference [see doc]). What I would like to see is items 4 and 5 not in the parts list and items 4.1 and 5.1 to show up but showing the tube size. I saw that there is an ipt and an iam for each diagonal tube. I would imagine that is for the end treatments but both the iam and ipt show the end treatments. If you are unable to look at the assembly let me know and I will send it to my reseller.

It looked like my zip did not go through. Here it is.

Hi! I need a bit more clarity of what you want to achieve in this workflow. I am not seeing an IDW in the attached zip file. What do you mean by clicking on the dropdown and picking "Part Only"? I am not sure I understand the workflow here.

Thanks!

Here is the idw. Not sure why it was not in the original pack and go. Maybe that is another issue. Due to the way the frame generator works, I made sub assemblies for the elevation view diagonals and plan view diagonals. In the class (with 2012) the instuctor was able to right click on these sub assemblies and select BOM where he was able to right click again in the BOM window and select "parts only" from the drop down. In 2011 it appears that the drop down is missing "parts only", (I only see normal, inseparable, purchased, phantom and reference) so in the idw the parts list is listing the diagonal sub assembly as well as the parts of the sub assembly and i only want the parts to show up. I was able to do this by double clicking the parts list and clicking the plus symbol for the subassembly. I hope the issue is clear but if you have more questions, let me know.
