Is there a way to tell a subassembly to by hidden in each assebly drawing but shown in BOM automatically?
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
There are several ways to do this:
1. You could put the component on a layer and turn the layer off
2. You could use component display to hide the component (layout -> component display for Creo 1.0 and up)
3. You could have a different simp rep for the view than for the BOM table
Each one of these has trade offs. Alternatively if it is something like epoxy or paint, you could add it as a bulk item.
I made a layer with rules to include desired subassembly.
Now i need to hide the subasm only in one simp. rep. - any idea?
There's no way to configure an assembly so that it is always hidden whenever it is assembled into another assembly.
In addition to the options suggested by Christopher, if you have advanced assy, you can use the include function. It's on the Model tab, in the Component area under the drop-down under "Assemble". It will place the assy in the model tree but not show it in the graphics area. It should then be included in your BOM. I'm not sure if it is then included in mass properties calculations, I would assume not.
