Customization of BOM structure

I'm trying to do a customization of the Bom structure to obtain a new custom column "Qty*x" (where "X" is a number).

I need this because in my order I have multiples of these items.

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately, there is not API to manipulate column of BOM in assembly. We have a wish for it.


If you just want to add a column before exporting BOM to other format such as an Excel file, I’d suggest you edit the Excel file since Excel provides API to add column.


If you want to manipulate PartsList in drawing document, Inventor API supports it:
