This might be a bit odd. I have an assembly. It is a vendor part. I imported it. It has parts that are actually the same part number, but the model name came in it's own name. I need to make a repair kit drawing. I don't want to go nuts changing out parts. I figured if I made the parts have identical parameters it would bring them together as one model and be a quantity of 2. In the past I've actually seen this happen and it was not intentional. I killed relations in bom to see if they had any bearing on the outcome. No.
Is there a way I can make this happen?
Please see attached.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I understand correctly you have 2 different file names but they have the same parameters that are showing in your repeat region and you want to combine them.
1. Replacing one with the other in the assembly model
2. Excluding one from the repeat region and use the Assemble -> Package functionality in the assembly to bump the QTY up one for the other
3. Muck around with the relations as @Mahesh_Sharma suggested
I ended up fixing the assembly to have same model for each particular component. Relations worked in BOM. But balloons gave me greif. Thanks all! Wayne
