"Quick question" on BOM structures in Solid Edge. Coming from Inventor, there was the ability to mark assemblies as "Phantom" - meaning that if you placed the phantom assembly into another assembly, the BOM print out of the parent assembly would appear flat, but the sub-assembly could still be opened and edited independently.
For example if you had an assembly with 3 sub-assemblies, one marked phantom (composed of say 4 sub-components), and some number of sub-components, the BOM would come out looking roughly like:
Furthermore, would the parts list on a JT file reflect this?
- Sub-Assm 1
- Sub-Assm 2
- Component 1
- Component 2
- Component 3 (Phantom Sub-Assm)
- Component 4 (Phantom Sub-Assm)
- Component 5 (Phantom Sub-Assm)
- Component 6 (Phantom Sub-Assm)
- Component 7
- Component 8
