BOM Cheat? Qty Value Override
ILoveMadoka posted a topic in SolidWorksAs a rule, in our BOM the QTY (quantity) equals how many of a part/assembly are included/inserted in an assembly. We've recently come across a couple situations where we need to override that number for a particular item. As an example, we have Screw X and we want the quantity to equal 100. Is there a way to get a manually entered QTY to show in the BOM for only one specific item when the BOM has many lines? For all the other items I want the QTY to equal the total in the assembly. It's like I need only 1 line in my BOM to read a Custom Property for this one item. If this do-able? Is there a different methodology for accomplishing this? I really want to avoid inserting 100 instances of this one screw in my top assembly, even if it's a pattern. (If possible) I know about manually typing in the cell to override that way... Looking for a "different" option.. Solidworks 2015 (if that matters) Please Advise Thanks
