Multiple parametric BOM balloons of the same detail???


New member
Is it possible to have multiple BOM balloons of the same detail without having to manually add balloons?

For example I have the same size screw used in several different views, but I can only show the balloon once, after that if I want to have a balloon for the screw I have to manually add the balloon. If I do that though, every time I re-order my BOM I have to find every manual balloon to see if I need to change it.

Any thoughts??????

One way to deal with this is to show BOM balloons with quantity. Then split the balloons and show them on different views.
