RE:BOM
Rather than creating the BOM from levels using virtual objects, use the actual solids.  Using generic edit*, open the "standard properties" page for each solid.  Here, you can set part number, description, vendor, etc.  Then you create a BOM (using a previously created template), pick "add/remove entities", and presto, you have a BOM listing all the parts and quantities.

* or rather than using generic edit, here is a kxl I use, which allows you to set multiple solids at the same time:



// EntProps.kxl
// D.M. Hague 2019
// This program applies specified properties to selected entities for later BOM use

//pause "%i %i %i", nument, er, @key
