I have a assembly in which I have 3 different weldments and 14 components. I am making a single drawing, in which I have all the components, but I only want to show a few weldment bodies (around 8 only). Can anyone recommend a good practice to show weldments and components in a single BOM?

I have a BOM with weldment and sheet metal parts that I'm trying to dissolve so that each length of tube and size of sheet is shown as one line item with a total quanitity needed for the job. When I dissolve the weldments with tubes, the correct quantities and lengths are shown. However, when I dissolve the sheet metal parts they all combine into one line item with a total quantity for all sheet metal parts regardless of thickness or size.

Change separator *.csv? we currently use SW2017 SP5.0. I have to export BOM in a *.csv file but by default SW use a "," as separator.

I hope anybody to help me in this matter, my question is: Is there a way via SW BOM Customization or Macro to know how many beam do i need to buy from my BOM Cut List. For example, if the hardware store sells weldments profiles in 40 ft (12m) long, SW can tell how many profile do i need to buy? Ruben Rodolfo BalderramaApr 10, 2018 8:55 AM(in response to Carlos Lermont) A cutting list exported to Excell gives an idea of quantity when adding by family of profiles, but does not give a nesting with

We have assemblies of different colors and in many of those we have different part colors that are specific to each configuration of the assembly. 1. Parts have multiple configurations

I have a fairly large print with a lot of BOMs. For the purpose of ballooning appropriately I need to know what BOM to connect a view to if I want the balloon to come out right. My problem is that all of the BOMs get listed at the top of my feature tree rather than on my sheet (never seen it different, if it can be that would be nice), and the only way I can seem to find out what a BOM's name is is to go and highlight BOMs in the tree until the one I am looking for lights up. This is a pain in

I'm not sure if this is possible but what I would like to do is add a column that will create link that will start a script in a BOM. Has anyone been sucessfull with something like this before? Looking for ideas.

I know there have been previous posts on this, but still haven't found an answer to the question I have. I need to be able to have a BOM to a top level assembly on multiple sheets, and I need to make sure the item numbers are the same on both (otherwise this becomes a very manual and tedious process). Is there any way to do this, I know you can copy a sheet but if you re-order parts it doesn't seem to propagate to the copied sheet. And from what I have seen so far you can only have one BOM

How can I do a bill of material with a column which is the sum of weight of all sub-assembly. Add a column to your BOM.

We would like to generate a beam cut list (not sheet metal) based on our SW BOM. Is there an add on that will do this or maybe a 3rd party program? I have bene poking around the program '1D Optimizer' and it looks promising but I wanted to see what you all were using before we pulled the trigger.

First post here in the forums. I firstly have thank all of the information I've gotten from the forums so far. I have resolved many issues from reading all of the post here.

In assembly drawing which contains some views, I replaced the Assembly model, in all views. I'm pretty sure you can't. You will need to delete that BOM and insert a new one.

Does anyone know of a good (or any) ways to directly interface the BOMs I make in SW with QB? I've been looking for a while now and no dice. I work for a small custom machine builder and am just finishing up over a month of exporting BOMs to excel, cleaning them up and organising them, then manually creating purchase orders in QB. Any solutions that would automatically create the BOMs in QB or automagically generate the POs would be amazing.

I am trying to create a BOM with multiple assemblies. I have come around this by creating 1 assembly and putting it into the drawing, and hide it. When I want to put a ballon to the assemblies shown in the BOM, some of them works just fine, but some gives me a * in the ballon (a star).

I have an old drawing parts list that I must duplicate in solid works. I can get everything except the Qty Required columns. The header row for this part is split into two (see attach). Bottom part is the header "QTY REQD". the upper part is the configuration dash number, then the remaining part of the column lists the quantity for each part.

How to create custom BOM with sizes of part? You can create a custom property in the parts that is linked to dimensions in the model and then link the column in the bom to the size custom property. See the Picture

I would like to insert a column in my BOM, that would tell me whether my weldments are cut at an angle in one end, the other end or both ends, by inserting a symbol that would look like I=/ or perhaps something else. The symbol is to tell the projectmanager, that they need to look at the drawing before ordering materials.

I have an assembly with multiple instances of some parts and want them to show up in order where they are in the assembly on my BOM instead of showing up only as a quantity on the first instance. I hope that makes sense to someone. Thanks!

I understand there is a new feature in SW2009 like Inventor's "Phantom Sub Assembly", where you can model an assembly of components, e.g. a nut, bolt and washer, and have the BOM display the child components and not the subassembly. Anyone know anything about this? I can't find anything in the "What's New" document, but one of the tech guys told me a while back that it was in 2009. Thanx.

Is there a way to create a BOM in a part drawing that includes multiple configurations. In the BOM menu under configurations, there is a drop down menu that makes me choose one configuration rather than a list with a check box where I can select multiple configurations. Create an Assembly, inserting one each of each configuration of the Part.

I have few parts in assembly, one part has 2 sizes configurations. Part number changes when size changes. I would like to have a bom template to let me do it. How to put those configuration specific information into BoM?

Does anyone know how to show parts or assemblies in a BOM and being inactivated? By bean inactivated I am meaning the item has been super ceded or become obsolete. Instead of the actual Qty number, the cell has the ">" in its place.

Is there a way for SolidWorks to output a BOM for an assembly with the total quantity of all sub-assemblies and all parts, including all parts under sub-assemblies while also showing no duplicates of the same part number? I have tried a number of options that do not work for my desired result.

I am wondering if it is possible to have the Cut List description in my BOM description? I am working on automating the BOM of steel structures and it would be awesome if was possible, I know that you can insert the Cut List description by choosing "Indented" in the Bill of Materials property, but the problem is that I will get two rows instead of one and then multiple length values. (See attached pic.) I cannot use the Weldment Cut List, because I have a lot of different equations linked to the
