Assembly / SubAssembly files in a Parts List

Hi All,


We have an issue regarding Parts Lists.

We currently produce a 'master parts list drawing' for the jobs we produce. This drawing has 2 rolled up parts list on it -


1 - purchased parts - so buying can order all the required parts in one go.

2 - manufactured parts - so production know which and how many parts to make.


Both of these can be setup in Inventor (using filters) so they display only the correct parts from the BOM.


However, neither of these show assembly / subassembly files (and consequently drawings)


Is there any way of creating a parts list that can show assembly files only?

One option might be to resort your BOM to group all of the assemblies together in the STRUCTURED tab, then use the RANGE filter to display only thos assemblies.
