Stop an item from showing up in a BOM or as a sub component

Hey guys, Is there a parameter that will stop an item from reporting in a BOM or as a sub component?  This relates to import geometry that is a purchased assembly with a bunch of sub-parts that I don’t want to show up in the itemized BOM.  Only the top level assembly should show

Thanks!

Re: Stop an item from showing up in a BOM or as a sub component

Which BOM are you referring to? A drawing table (repeat region BOM) or the BOM report under TOOLS - BOM?

On the repeat region table on a drawing, you can set the level you want. Go to TABLE tab, REPEAT REGION, ATTRIBUTES, then select your table and choose FLAT for one level.

Flattening at a particular level as noted above is best if you want to not report a whole subassembly tree.  If you want to not report individual items, or based on some rule (say, not report models with a certain value of a parameter), then go to Repeat Region > Filters, by item or by rule as desired.
