Is there any way to view that a custom link has been added to a BOM table? For instance, I start with a blank row in the BOM table. I double-click on a cell in that row and then click the Link to Property button.

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 Guptadid some further checking and discovered that this only works if there's only one table in the Drawing (no other BOM's or cut

How do I edit the custom properties in multiple files at once? I know how to use SW explorer to do this one at a time but there has to be a way I can change properties in multiple files at once. Without buying add on software that is.

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 top level assembly and there are many sub level assembly. Some off the shelf component CAD models are downloaded as assemblies, some of them are downloaded as parts. In each of my assembly, I have configuration and exploded views. Now, I need to create a BOM for all parts and purchased items.

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.

I want to use the below excel formula in SW-Bom table. Since it is not an excel based Bom table, i am not able to make it happen in the SolidWorks BOM. =LEN(ITEM NO.)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(ITEM NO.,CHAR(46),""))+1

I created a plate weldment so that I could include it in my weldment table with the description automatically filled out with the size. What I want to be able to do is delete the length property for all my plates or just put NA. I've tried doing this but it seems that I can't modify it. Is there a way to do this without modifying the 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

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.

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!
