This is done by “Promoting” the components. The CADWhisperer YouTube Channel The subassembly appears as a single item in the BOM. Well, not even SOLIDWORKS knows yet. For example, if you look at my first image, we see that this part has an appearance applied at the part level. Parts only will show every part file in the assembly. Assigning model appearances in SOLIDWORKS is fast and easy, but can be confusing when viewing those appearances when applied at different stages of the assembly process. This includes top-level components and parts that reside in the subassemblies and even parts that may be several levels deep. In the FeatureManager design tree, the icon changes to, To make a flexible subassembly rigid, click the subassembly and click. Organization, collaboration, reuse, configurations, and performance gains are all great reasons that support using subassemblies. Let’s look at a Bill of materials for this mountain scooter assembly using these three different options. You can move the individual components of the piston while still grouping the components as a subassembly. In the drawing, expand the BOM and right-click on the subassembly that contains the parts that we would like to promote.

When I bubble the individual weldment body at the main assembly drawing view, the bubble is fine. In the FeatureManager design tree, the icon changes to to indicate that the sub-assembly is flexible. The Promote option will dissolve a subassembly in the SOLIDWORKS BOM and display the subassembly’s child components. You should also have a shortcut icon in the context menu (shown below in green) to make the subassembly flexible directly. To report problems encountered with the Web help interface and search, contact your local support representative. Sincerely,The SOLIDWORKS Documentation Team. For example, a Top-level only BOM usually lists just the subassembly and not its child components. You have the option to set a assembly file so it will always appear to be dissolved in a BOM if it is being used as subassembly. After you can delete the "empty sub-assembly.
