Q - question

My Bill of Materials lists profile lengths instead of qty.

A - answer In your BOM style set the Item QTY property (column) instead of the default QTY property (Substitution/Value substitution). This shows the true number of pieces (quantity) for both standard parts and profiles. The QTY value gives now (since Inventor R10) length for profiles.
