If you have been working with a SOLIDWORKS bill of material table (BOM) for a while, perhaps you have noticed that there are limitations when it comes to adding balloons to a sub-assembly and its components. For example, if you want to add a balloon to a sub-assembly SOLIDWORKS does not allow us, and no matter where we click it shows the item number of one of the components and not the sub-assembly itself.
There are different workarounds to add a balloon. In this short video we will discuss three of them including:
- Adding the balloon to the sub-assembly origin
- Using a sketch at the assembly level
- Using two BOMs
