How do you manage purchased assembled parts (such as bearings) as a single part for BOM purposes?
I import bearing 3D CAD models from various vendors on Traceparts, etc.
Bearing Vendors generally supply 3D Cad Models as assemblies (perfectly logical).
This is an issue with the CAD packages I use, (SW & Onshape). I want a simple ball bearing assembly to appear on a Parts List BOM a single purchased part, rather than a list of bearing parts such as:
Outer Race x 1
Inner Race x 1
Balls x Number of Balls
Seal x 2
How do you handle this situation?
