Is there a way to tell ACADE to split the BOM into two grouped columns
instead of one?
I have been ungrouping and splitting manually, but I'm getting tired of
If not capable, maybe a future release could have this feature.......
There is a way, but it is cumbersome at best for now, I think Autodesk has been asked to refine this process...hang tight.
But for now you can follow a use the "Start AT" and "End AT" text entry boxes found in the Table Generation Setup Dialog box. Run your BOM Report, Then click the "Put on DWG" button located at the bottom of the generated report dialog box. This brings up the Table Generation Setup Dialog.
After deciding your text setup, you must determine what a good break number would be. We use anywhere from 50-65 lines based on a 1/8" text height and 1.00 width. Now enter that number in the "END AT" box and place the BOM table, then use the "CANCEL" button to find the next break point for the next portion of the table. You will have to experiment a time or two...but that's how we are handling this for now.
