Pro/ENGINEER considers only one model in the drawing to be the default, or current, model.The last model added to the drawing becomes the current model, but you can set any model ascurrent by choosing
from the DWG MODELS menu.The system references an active model when you are adding views, or for any function thatrequires a default model. For example, when you add a repeat region to a drawing table, typereport parameters in the repeat region, and update the table, it lists information from the modelthat was the current drawing model at the time that you added the repeat region to the table. Inaddition, the Pro/ENGINEER
menu and the
command in the DRAWING menuapply to the active model.

Including a Bill of Materials in a Drawing
If you do not have the Pro/REPORT module, but you want to add a Bill of Materials (BOM) toyour drawing, you can create a BOM file in Assembly mode by choosing
menu. Add the BOM file to the drawing as a note entered from a file. Toformat or arrange the information in the BOM, you must use the system editor. You can fullyedit the BOM displayed on the drawing as a note without affecting the original BOM file. For more information on creating and formatting a BOM, see.
