Basics Of Assembly Drawings, BOM and Balloons....


New member
Dear All:

I am relatively new to Pro E. I am reasonably good at making components and assembling them, but now I need to make an assembly drawing complete with BOM and balloons. I have done OK so far, but I get multiple listings of the same item in the BOM and it is ballooned for each listing. It should only be listed one time in the BOM along with the quantity used, not listed and ballooned separately for each instance.. Any basic help or advice with this problem or any other basic assembly detailing problem would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, I changed to BOM Balloon with qty. Thanks for your help. I also have a call in to my good friends in India just in case.
