There are some nice functionalities in customizing BOM using equations. I'm looking for a way to customize BOM in SW2017 where "Item No." would also reflect the type of material at front of it .The combined value is linked to balloons and will be presented in drawing views.(see pics.).

I need save BOM template with empty rows. I create BOM, add rows and hide item number (I guess - I'm sorry, I haven't got English version). But If I save it as template, and insert to drawing, empty rows are deleted.

The company I work for has been using macros to take there autocad BOM and import it into Navision. We are just now beginning to use Solidworks and we are hoping there is a way to take a bom from Solidworks and import it into Navision. Is there a macro out there for this? I'm assuming that we have to take solidworks bom and open it up in ms excel and then macro it into Navision.

The feature of solidworks to label all the parts using the part number instead of the filename seems to have received a lot of complains. I have an issue where I have a large assembly and a lot of my parts are made from the same basic part, that originally had a part number

Yellow Text in B.O.M.? Wanted to add another workaround solution for when that yellow text shows up due to a manual edit. The same thing happened when I inadvertently made a manual change.

As can be seen on the attached, I am trying to determine what is displayed in the DESCRIPTION column based on what is shown in the CODE column. Essentially I would like the DESCRIPTION column to show either the Description or Material properties from the part. I am pretty new to the formula side of things so any help is appreciated.

You can set the size of BOM in document properties and then Table -- Bill of Materials. Set the text font size and then right click at the bom in your dwg for adjust size of table.

I'm looking for a way to add the total linear footage of edgebanding (pvc moulding on the edges of wood parts, sold by the foot) to the BOM of any given assembly. In the attached example, I want the BOM to have one line for the edgebanding on the two cabinet doors and show a total LF. Obviously the first step would be to model the edgebanding as a separate part, but then I'd have a line for each door. I want the edgebanding on one line for the whole cabinet (only 2 doors in this example).

Toolbox configuration names missing I recently messed around with my toolbox, and finally deleted the whole toolbox to let SolidWorks recreate it. Afterwards I created a new standard so I had this to mess around with instead of the original ISO, DIN etc standards of the Toolbox.

When doing drawings for assemblies, I insert a Excel Based BoM to call out Quantity, Part Number, and a short Description. Here lately I have been having a strange issue where my BoM duplicates itself. I have also figure out I can manually trigger this by rebuilding the document with "Ctrl Q", or by saving the document as a PDF. (Which i'm guessing rebuilds the document during the save) So if I have a BoM with parts 1-5, and rebuild the document, it will list them as 1-5, and 1-5 again.

Am trying to add a column to a custom BOM that is calculated based on an Assy custom property. As back ground, we have a custom BOM that is loaded onto a sheet in the assembly drawing that serves as a tooling build release document. It displays the part number, description and qty to be manufactured. This quantity though should be calculated as "quantity per assy" x "number of assemblies to build".

Is it possible to generate a BOM of parts that are shown in a display state? Ex. I have 100 parts in an assembly.

Most of my SolidWorks experience is with smaller shops, startup companies, etc. This typically means smaller number of parts, less focus on drawing detail more focus on actually building things, and also putting your own systems in place.

I am trying to create an assembly BOM - lets say a top level type. I want the BOM to display the Revision number of the drawing file related to the part/subassembly. Ultimately, I want the BOM to read the custom property data from the drawing file of item 1.

In assembly file Zoom to fit button always considers assembled part only. It is not considering BOM table as a result BOM table can hide (unless you adjust it) to one side and one side of the canvas can remain empty space. Is there any way to fix this? That means Zoom to fit button should consider assembled part and BOM table as well.

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.

As you can see row height of this cell has changed. Is it possible to make all cells to take same height automatically? Select the corner and double click and then select the corner again and drag to what looks good, there are numeric settings that you can change like excel. - Thanks Jim Steinmeyer
