In an exploded view, how can I balloon to a subasm and have the subasm part number appear in the bom instead of the part in the subasm the arrow touches? Steve, I'm not sure what's happening. I explode my assemblies all the time and the subs are ballooned (manual albeit) and my PDM system sees them as they are supposed to be.

On a few old drawings there are BOMs that do not follow the drawing units. For example, if the drawing units are set to fractions (wood industry, don't shoot) the BOM will be in decimals. The BOM isn't consistent though. Most of the values will be in decimal and only a few will follow the drawing units and show as fractions.

I am trying to optimize the BOM to streamline the info that I need. There are parts that I don't need to make a BOM for so I want to exclude them. I right click on the part and select Component Properties from the menu. On that menu I then select the check box for exclude from Bill Of Materials and hit ok.

I'd like to create a create nested If-Then statements inside a BOM but cannot get through the first one. Basically what I would like is that if Largeur and Longueur are both equal to SO then I want the cell to be blank. I know how to do this type of equation in Excel but cannot get it to work inside OF SW BOM's. I have tried this in several different "tweaks" to the equation but no luck

Is there a way to get the BOM to add up same profiles in different lengths, to a one total length? I have been creating som railings, where the frames are of different lengths, but they are made from the same materials.

Has anyone come across a B.O.M. whereby a requirement to display the configurations of the same part as one itemANDdisplay configurations of the same part as separate items? I currently have an assembly showing hydraulic cylinders in configurations (same part number, opposite hand). Also have a selection of washers (created in a part with configurations) used in the top level assembly .

Part Configuration Grouping Bit of a difficult one here, hoping there's a solution.

I have recurring problems with my BOM's. Most of the time I can simply delete the BOM, add a new one, dissolve where necessary, re-sort, and move on. However, when I'm working on 100+ part weldment assemblies with these BOM problems drive me absolutely bonkers. Here's 2 of these issues in detail

I have a slightly complicated situation where I would like to make a BOM of several configurations, while promoting some of the sub assemblies in the BOM. I am using a top-level only BOM to accomplish this, and have done so successfully with other drawings. This one, however, is being more difficult and I can not seem to figure out why. For starters, the icon that appears on the left side for each part/assembly when you extend the BOM shows an icon for a part rather than an assembly.

I have an assembly with a BOM & the view is linked to a specific BOM table. For some reason the balloons aren't matching the BOM Item No's. I changes the "Start at:" from 1 to 40, the balloon properties are showing the correct numbers, but the balloon itself isn't. I have searched and can't find anything on the forums that solves the problem.

Why can I not get my assembly BOM to update with the custom properties changed at the part level? I change the description of a given part and it does not update on the BOM. Are there configurations involved?

Im doing a preliminary house design and am trying to come up with a BOM so I can get an idea of what my material will costs will be. I set up the structural member tool so I can create 2 x 6 and 2x4 and other dimensional lumber fairly quickly. I broke the house up into parts such as foundation, 1st floor framing etc. When I created my drawing for BOM purposes i kept each part (with a ton of structural member cut list parts) on a separate page.

It is possible to reorder balloons item numbers that appear in BOM, using some different criteria on drawing level or assembly level? Thank you I appreciate. With a macro most likely.

When I save a BOM to Excel, any field that contains leading zeroes in SolidWorks is trimmed to remove them in Excel. Not sure if this is an issue with the way SolidWorks creates the Excel file, or the way Excel treats it when it is opened. Does anyone know a way around this?

I've got a large assembly in which there are several sub-assemblies all of which are using common parts in differing configurations and interact with each other. This is displayed as a type of GA on Sheet 1. The Sub assemblies are then detailed on subsequent sheets. So as not to introduce too much manual editing of the BOM, I'd like to create an off page BOM on Sheet 1 and reference all the part numbers on the sub-assembly BOMs to it so there's no Part No duplication.

i want sheet metal flat development size in my bill of material, can any one tell me it is possible with solid works or not? Have you tried linking it to a custom property or a configuration custom property?

I try to Manually edit my BoM to add some details like material for Tool Box Parts which doesn't come on BoM other than some number like 7750. When I double click on the cell it go to edition mode for a second and move out from the cell. Also I noticed that some change I did to the part property like material in the model level (Not for tool Box Part) is not reflecting in the BoM.

Recently I have not been able to overwrite the text in a BOM like change the qty manualy and if I insert a line I cannot add any text to any of the fields. Is there somthing that I have turned on or off?

Separate Parts Lists is there a natural way to have a separated PL as solidworks collateral (SLDDRW)? ASME permits either an integral BOM or a separated BOM, including one managed as part of an "AUTOMATED DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM" (ADPS). is there a way within solidworks that would allow the solidworks product structure to be maintained as a separated BOM that could be revision managed as a separated revision controlled object from the graphical item drawing, or model?

Item Number Can I define a parts 'Item Number' in the properties of the part. And, then have this property setting control the item number in the BOM.

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.
