Is there a way to filter out a component from the BOM. I have a component in my model that I do not want to be shown in the BOM. Andrew Guitar Oct 7, 2010 9:20 AM (in response to mitchell shellenberger) Right click on the part in the assembly tree,select properties and in the lower right corner you will see a box that says"exclude from BOM".

We are trying to import a bom directly from solidworks into Opera 3 (stock/purchasing/accounts program) without modifying it in Excel first. When we import the bom into Opera 3 via excel we have to have the information set out correctly in Excel for Opera 3 to read it correctly. We don't want to assign the assembly number to each part (property) as the parts may be in other assemblies and we don't want to enter it in manually.

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 would like to ad an overall dimension of each part like in the picture below. i figure it out how to ad one dimension in one row, but adding length, width and height in the same property i could not figure it out You can concatenate the dimensions in single property. Check attached video.

I'm working on a BOM with configuration quantities. For some reason some parts are being multiplied by 4 but others are correct. Attached an image of the BOM and the BOM settings. All parts are multiple configurations of a single part (change in length).

I recently discovered that if you insert a BOM in a SW2017 Drawing, drawing views of the components in the BOM inserted afterwards will automatically be linked to it. People have been asking for something like this for a long time, so it's a great enhancement, but somehow it didn't make it into the "What's New" document (or at least if it did I can't find it). Deepak Gupta did some further checking and discovered that this only works if there's only one table in the Drawing (no other BOM's or

I was double clicking to enter values in the cells of my BOM table and then by accident i have clicked something that stop me from being able to do this now. It was somthing to do with linking the values in the cells together.

I'm working with a large assembly file that contains a mixture of Solidworks and Inventor parts and assemblies, using the 3D interconnect feature. 3D interconnect works great at the model level, but at the drawing level there is a serious problem with the BOM functionality. The Inventor parts appear correctly on the BOM table, but when using the Balloon feature the inventor parts will not link to the BOM number in the balloon, forcing me to enter each Balloon manually as a custom property. This

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.

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 can think of two ways to solve the problem... I am sure there are more. 1.Use the Combine Assemby feature to actually make the two parts one part.

I'd like to make a drawing table, which shows certain custom variables but so that it shows all configurations' values (support reaction /weight) in same table. This is what I've done this far:

Is there a way to make this pop up go away? I have to manually edit BOM's quite often, and see this pop up sometimes 40 times per BOM. I ALWAYS want it to select keep link, and i always select Don't show again, but it pops up over and over again. Clicking the don't show again box doesn't seem to help.

I wonder if others have experienced this and have managed to solve it? I've just had a problem with Bill Of Materials on a model - was fine but now the grid is offset from the bill. I've tried deleting the bill and adding a new one and that doesn't work.

Can you make a single multi configured part BOM in SW that looks like an assembly BOM? Or can I make an Assembly and merge multiple Descriptions? Ideally I want to merge common "Descriptions" and have the different Lengths ("Length 1" & "Length 2") of those Configurations next to each other... see below...

I want to start this question off by stating that one of my pet peeves is redundancies. As of right know since the bill of material is more important than the image. I have a geometry-less assembly structure added to the model and due to the time to do/ value added i dont make an add the decals image. Is there a way to have the decal to be in the bill of material.

In an exploded drawing for a manual, I want to show my two subassemblies in the BOM table, as well as the parts within them. I want to show the quantities of the parts in the top level assembly rather than the subassembly, but when I use the "promote" option, this takes the subassembly out of the BOM and just leaves the balloon as an asterisk. I am using indented flat numbering.

why do my item numbers in the drawing change when I replace a part in an assembly? How do I keep this from happening? In the properties of the BOM select the option indicated in the image below.
