BOM Bill of materials

To find the settings of the BOM go into the document settings of the assembly or part and click on the BOM tab.

 

To get to the BOM itself:

The parts list is derived from the BOM, but is not the same thing. It seems to be closer to the metal. I think you can't do much with the BOM, whereas the parts list is more flexible.

 

Components can be

1.Normal
2.Phantom, like screws nuts washers, ignored by the BOM but used in the mass calculations.
3.Referenced, these are not real components, but are present to help the drawing construction. Ignored by BOM and mass calculations.
4.Purchased, the component is a single BOM line
5.Inseperable, made of parts, but of parts which cannot be separated from each other
