I am trying to create several BOMs for different portions of an assembly on multiple pages; would like to use a one set of numbers and not have it reset for each page You can have a BOM start with any numeral you want.

First, let me say I know how to define the "Total" definition in a cell (in order to sum all the values in the specific column). my sequence of actions is this (question at the bottom):

I work for a large manufacturing company with an internal machine design group. We design several dozen unique machines per year, all with hundreds (or thousands) of parts and quite a few sub-assemblies. Our current BOM system is a 3rd party Access database. We use Solidworks for mechanical design and the electrical engineers use Autocad for schematics.

Dear all, i am beginner in sw, i want to know how to display size length,width,thicknes ,od ,id to set in different column? what sort of parts are you modelling? for od and id I would be inclined to recommend using a weldment to create the parts, this would allow create a cutlist that would give you all the data you mention.

I have an assembly with multiple configurations. I have a sub-assembly that is used in both configurations.

Hello fellow SolidWorkers, In SW assembly you can add comments to the parts and sub-assemblies.

Is there a way to have number to subaasembly and then separate numbes to some of its parts using flat numbering in indented bom? It seems that in indented bom you can number parts only but not subassemblies that consist of these parts. When I try to put balloon it only allows me to number parts but not subassembly.

I've had a question for a while regarding re-numbering a BOM. If I automatically call up a BOM with its associated properties then delete one of the components is there a way I can easily re-number from 1 to the end without that skipped component in the list? So far I've just been manually updating them by hand but this gets pretty tiresome in 100+ part assemblies. I would even be happy with a macro that could do this process for me since it doesn't effect the balloons or anything.

Having the component reference is very handy when working alongside the electrical folks, but when the BOM breaks it up into multiple lines it sure creates challenges when importing the BOM into an inventory system. Lots of manual work to recognize that you need to purchase 5 resistors instead of 5 individual items. Under Part configuration grouping do you have "Display as one item number" checked?

My dimensions in the BOM are not showing the X between dimensions. How can I fix that? FYI I use SW R2012.

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 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 right click on my BOM table and save it as an Excel spreadsheet (either xls or xlsx.) When I open this spreadsheet, it has "Sharing" turned on by default. This disables many features in Excel, but it was easy to turn off sharing, so not a big deal. In the latest update, Excel has eliminated the ability to turn off "Sharing" so now it is a big deal.

Is there a way to change the text justification of BOM tables? Currently, everything is centered. I would like everything left indented by 1.

I'm in the process of rebuilding a drawing and bill of material for an assembly that has had quite a few revisions before this point, meaning the bill is all over the place as far as item numbers. An example is the item numbers jumping from 118 to 313. There are lots of gaps, and having dummy parts to take up those spots isn't an option since there are so many. I'd rather not overwrite all the item numbers in the table if there's a better way of getting this done.

First time poster, long time user. I'm having problems with the BOM in my drawings. I've clicked on the show/hide row column feature and I hide a bunch of parts I don't want to include in the BOM in the drawing.

In Creo software, you can make custom BOM balloons as a symbol (or block) and put a reference to any column in BOM table. I can make BOM balloon that takes values from multiple BOM columns, and only limitation is that colums for these types of BOM balloons must be present in the BOM table. I can, for example, have item number, quantity, name of the detail and its size all shown on BOM balloon.

How do you not display the configuration name in the BOM Qty header/column property. When I create a BOM for the drawing it displays the configuration name exploded in the column property header. I want it to only display QTY. I have gone into the column property manager and manually edited the Title field, and also tried highlighting and changing directly from the bom on the sheet.

If I click on the BOM the item line numbers show for what should be visible on the BOM but the text for each item does not. To cause this I simply went to the show/hide rows option in the BOM to add a row, didn't select anything, and then clicked outside of the BOM to close the show/hide option. Whenever I have strange stuff like this happen with a BOM I usually delete it and re-insert it.

Hi, I am using a simple BoM with hidden cells. The values on these hidden cells are linked (by equation) to other cells.

No 12 nut is in the BOM table but hiding behind the part. How to show this in the drawing? If you can't attach a balloon directly to the part, you could use "Stacked Balloon" to attach it to another balloon.
