How to derive BOM from ECTR for top level assembly in one go


Currently the ECTR supports deriving BOM for all the sub level assembly at first and then allows us to derive the BOM for top level assembly finally.

Is there any settings that I missed here in ECTR Interface to SOLIDWORKS that would help me to generate the BOM in one go selecting the top level assembly only....

The procedure that I followed is as follows,

  • Imported the SLW assembly file with all its sub-assemblies and parts.
  • Created material masters for all these imported documents.
  • Derived BOM for all the subassemblies individually first, else the BOM becomes incomplete for the final assembly.
  • After deriving BOM for all the subassemblies, then derived BOM for the topmost assembly file.
  • BOM gets generated

Is there an option to derive BOM selecting just the top level assembly in one go (which includes all the subassemblies)..

Thanks & Regards,

S. Arun Prasad
