We can’t always guarantee that other Inventor users will follow good practice when creating parts lists in drawings. One really common issue we see is an inexperienced (or deadline haunted) designer manually entering data into a drawing parts list. This results in a broken link between the model data (the master) and the drawing parts list. Bad news.
Many CAD managers will appreciate the ability to quickly highlight issues such as this, so here’s a quick iLogic rule to sniff out any overrides and give the ability to automatically remove the overrides and display the master BOM data in your parts list(s) again.
The iLogic rule checks ALL parts lists in the active drawing and gives the additional option to manually edit the offending parts list if desired. Give your CAD manager a hug.
