Viewing a Flat or Nested List

You can switch between a flat view and a nested view of the Assembly Visualization list.

You can show:
  • Nested view, where subassemblies are indented
  • Flat view, where subassembly structures are ignored (similar to a parts-only BOM)

To switch views of the list:

  • On the Assembly Visualization tab , click Flat/Nested View / .
