There are many situations where CAD geometry from other sources needs to be brought in Creo from other systems (e.g. vendor or customer data) but partially reported, or not at all.
Nitro-BOM automatically checks for special model parameter (NITRO_BOM_FILTER) that you can add from Nitro-BOM, or manually in Creo, to optionally control the reporting of model content to Nitro-BOM exported reports.
- NITRO_BOM_FILTER = NOWALK -> will report a sub-assembly, but not any content within it to the Nitro-BOM report(s)
- NITRO_BOM_FILTER = NOREPORT - this not report any item that contains this value
The Nitro-BOM export setting Apply Nitro-BOM Filter
must be enabled
for the NITRO_BOM_FILTER options to be applied
