How to create BOM in part studios

Hello ONSHAPE community ! ;)

Anyone have a idea how to create BOM for multi body sheet metal part studio?
I have created multi body sheet metal part studios and i wondering how i may present it on drawing for shop floor guys.
Because of its complexity move it to assembly is not a option. I started from surface model and convert it to sheet metal parts.
Any ideas.

    Yea that group mate is a real life saver. It will actually speed up your assembly in some cases: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/comment/38234

    Dropping parts in assembly and group mating as John just showed is also very fast to do on mobile. I had a large imported assembly and was able to put all the parts in assemblies, group and fix, all on my phone while traveling (wife driving) and I think the workflow was as quick or quicker than in the browser.
