We are working on exporting our BOM to another system to help with purchasing. (EPDM is not an option at this time.) When we create the BOM, we create an indented BOM with detailed numbering. It would be helpful to also have basically a row number in addition to the item number. I found that I can add a column that has an equation, but I have not figured out how to have the cell add one to the cell above it. (In excel for example, cell A2 would have the equation "=A1+1" and then this would fill

Is there anyway to get the Cut list item name into a Bill of Materials? I need the functionality of the Bill of Materials not the Weldment Cut List. Thanks

I have multiple parts that are not part of an assembly. I want to put 4 parts on 1 drawing sheet and have the BOM show all 4 parts. Is there a way to do this without adding them all to an assembly? I can only select 1 part to create the BOM, so I currently need to have 4 BOMs in order to show all the part properties.

I've run into an issue where I have an Assy that I need to make a drawing where it would be better to show as a Parts Only BOM and have to manually insert additional lines for few specific assy's. The problem I ran into was that while in the Assy Model, the item would not stay excluded for some reason after saving and closing the file. I was picking parts both at the top level and parts inside of sub-assy's and checking their exclude from BOM box and everything seemed fine, as long as I did not

Good Morning Everyone, I just noticed that when I create a BOM containing a configured part and I change it to Indented with detailed cutlist, that it switches the description and part number of configured part to the first configuration for that part.

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).

Recently I when I try to insert BOM table in 3D assly or 2D, the font size and column width is too large and it doesnt allow to export before I go and manually change the font size. no option to change column and row size. Is there any setting I can update? Previously it was fine and got changed in between.

I have multiple drawings of different sub-assemblies with balloons to each part, and would like to keep the item numbers all in sequence, with each part having its own unique number. So far, for each BOM, I take the last number and start the next BOM with the proceeding number, and continue this for all the tables. However, if i take a part out or add a part, I have to manually update the other BOM Tables to start from a different number.

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 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'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.

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.
