To not assign PARTID to the BOLTS that are excluded in the BOM.
Even when we exclude any component from the BOM, the Isometrics Engine assigns PARTID to it and excludes it from the Bill Of Materials, resulting into improper numbering in the BOM. So it is advisable that we do not assign a PARTID label to the component.
To exclude it from getting a PARTID, open the rep_sortgroups.txt and add SKIP = 1 at the last line as shown in the below image.
