This is my first post...I'm glad to see that TC finally upgraded their old forum to something modern.
Regarding the Bill of materials. I find TC 17 extremely lacking in any ability to manage parts easily.
Maybe I'm missing something, but it would sure me nice if you could tag a property for each part, set it's part number, then select the entire drawing and tell it to generate a parts list table. Seems simple enough but I am unable to find anything that can do that...easily.
If anyone can direct me to a good tutorial on creating a bill of materials or cut list in 17.2, please do.
Another cool feature would be to explode, excuse me, disassemble, a model or portion thereof without having to trudge through the parametric parts creation (which I have yet to fully grasp). Highlight a section, define a center point then delta offset the related parts in all directions.
