BOM Item explode sequence is not as per the SOLIDWORKS document or Tree structure


While we import SOLIDWORKS assembly into SAP PLM - ECTR through Import On Demand option, the tree structure is similar to what is in SLW. After importing when we take into assembly window, the display of SLW file structure is in alphabetical sequence and hence the BOM generation and explosion of BOM will be as per the assembly window display.

Actual requirement should be like what it is in the SLW tree structure when opened in SOLIDWORKS, i.e the assembly window should display the assembly structure as-is to that of SLW tree structure.

Is there any settings to be enabled...?

Thanks & Regards,

S. Arun Prasad

    Hi Arun,

    the assembly window shows only the document structure as it is in SAP. Therefore it not shows the structure as it is in CAD.

    But you can change the sort order in this window using the "Change Tree Sort Order" function.

    I hope that this will help you.
