Structural 2019
When I create a PLINE with an arc the materials are split into three parts but I wish to have a single item that I call out as "bent" in the BOM. Single arc is fine by itself. Suggestions?

It looks like Structure draws 3 separate pieces since they are separate, it won't consolidate in the BOM.

What you could do is model this as an extruded 3d solid or similar and then use the Structure generic attach tools. Not ideal I know, but this will resolve your BOM issues.

This allows you to add data to any 3D Object in the model.

Yeah, Generic Attach is wonderful for those oddball components. It would be greater if you could put pre-made descriptions into a spec so they don't have to be typed in manually every time.
