Re: BOM Reference parts & Hidden lines

If you set the cylinder's BOM Attribute to Purchased or Inseparable, you absolutely should not see the component parts in any higher-level BOMs.

Re: BOM Reference parts & Hidden lines

Attached here is a screen shot of our data management program (Autodesk Productstream Pro 2011) showing that it created a BOM.  This is a problem because all of our BOM's in Productstream are then without discresion exported to SAP to be used by our vendors and purchasing department.  A BOM of useless information has the potential to confuse everyone. 

 

Also using this method should there be a BOM created at all for the cylinder? My goal is to not have any BOM created for the cylinder is that doable in any way?

 

Thankyou for all your help

I've never used or seen Productstream, so I can't help you there.  As far as Inventor's BOM is concerned, though, an Assembly marked Purchased is a single component and shows no subcomponents.  I would hope that Productstream would treat it the same.
