Making a part in an assembly a reference

In creo how do you make a part within an assembly a reference part. What I mean by this is I want to put a part in an assembly, but I only want it to be in the model, not the Bill of Materials. So when I export the Bill it doesn't include the part. So it shows up in the model only.

Re: Making a part in an assembly a reference

Hi,

Let me see if I understand, would you like to add a model in an assembly, however this model should not appear in BOM?

How did you create this BOM list? Is there a parameter in the reference piece that adds the BOM list?

Re: Making a part in an assembly a reference

Yes, I would like to add a model in an assembly, and it not appear in the BOM. We have a program that automatically exports the BOM. In inventor we used to be able to make a part a reference part, which would make it a model only part and it only appeared in the model.

Re: Making a part in an assembly a reference

Not sure how you reference, or for what purpose of that part in the assembly, but you might want to check out the skeleton model. We use skeleton model as design reference part. Hope it helps you as well.
