Re: Balloons and BOMs

From what I understand, if there is a quantity of 1 for an item in the assembly, you cannot have a balloon with it's number only in both sheets of the drawing.

Re: Balloons and BOMs

Sure it's possible. Just make your first sheet with your BOM-template, and with the same model active you create a new sheet with a regular (non-BOM) template. Put one or more views on the second sheet and click 'Create balloons - All'.

Without any balloons on any other sheet it will be easy. If you want, you can spread them over multiple sheets, but then you'll best place them 'By component'.

...or do ref balloons.....
