I'm trying to create a parts list that will show item numbers for the sub assemblies and the individual parts for each sub assembly. When I'm creating the parts list in the drawing, the option for "All Levels"is greyed out once I select my source assembly. Any idea how I can show this in a Parts list?
That seems to work, now I just have to figure out how to make it so I can see the assemblies and their parts in the parts list. For some reason the assemblies are not visible.
Basically, I need to see my three assemblies as item numbers 1,3,5. And then see all the parts of those assemblies as 11,13,15,17,19, etc. When I edit my Parts List after it has been inserted I see everything, with the item numbers I applied in the BOM of the assembly, but I can't get the lines containing the assemblies to be visible (right click, visible, doesn't work)
Maybe I am expecting way to much customization!
Anyone have any ideas?
I know it is a bit confusing! I can place the All Levels Structured Parts List into my idw, however, I can either show the assemblies, or the parts that make them up. (see attached for clarification) When the assemblies are expanded in the Parts List editor, they become greyed out and I cannot make them visible in the Parts List. We are in the process of changing or drawing package, and we need to be able to assign item numbers to both aeesmblies and parts, in the same parts list.
Thank you so much for your help, this is driving me crazy!
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I was using Inventor 2011.
This assembly was created by simpley Placing the sub assemblies in. This is a very simplistic version that I am using to try to get this parts list to work. These asemblies will get more complicated in the future. Right now, two small assemblies were created seperately, and Placed into an empty one, all by the same software.
