Custom Property not accessed by BOM


New member
I have two instances of a part model in an assembly, and each configuration of the part has a user specified property (config specific) "Number" that's used in the BOM. The "Number" property shows up fine in the second instance of the component, but not the first. I've tried changing the "Part Number Displayed" value to make the two instances display differently but no help. Am I missing something?
The assembly is may be referring to default config, instead of the one you intended. Remember to set the option "do not change number" (or something like that) after theyt have been reordered, as it will prevent them from "self" re-ordering until you tell them.
