Hi All, Is there a way that the Plate item (shown below item 1 and 2) is described with thickness only? For example, I only want Plate, 10mm to be in the evaluated value. I know I can modify/delete the value, but I want to have this automatically so that I do not have to edit the description of each body everytime. Also, how can I have the PLATE in small caps?

I just developed a free cut list add-in for SolidWorks that makes creating cut lists and texturing models a much simpler task. It fills in some much needed features for those using SolidWorks for designing wood products. I'm looking for some testers that could try out the add-in in the real world. You can download the add-in from this site: www.pathfinder3d.com SolidworksBill Of Materials

I am creating a custom SW-BOM which we than save as an excelfile. I'm adding a few new columns which is pushing the number of columnsto over 26. SW is inserting symbols instead of an Alpha code andthis is causing my save as Excel to crash. Is there a way to edit the columns header to use AA,AB,AC etc.instead of keyboard symbols?

I have all of my parts set up so that their configurationname is the one that is shown on the BOM. If I change aconfiguration name though it changes my BOM name to thepart/assemblies name (not the config. name). It won't allow me toupdate this at all. Any suggestions?

I have seem to have lost the ability to click and drag thesize of the BOM. I used to be able to click and drag the bottomright corner of the BOM and resize the rows when placing the BOM onthe top left of the drawing. How can I get this back?SolidworksBill Of Materials

I've created a Copy of a Drawing and replaced the referencesto new assembly (Save As from the original), all the views, notes,tittle block and everything is working great (looking at the copyassembly), but the BOM is still the one from the original assembly;What gives?

I want to do a BOM for my top-level assembly that will pullall parts in the assembly, sub-assemblies, as well as parts insideother parts (like as in a weldment cut list). I want it to get allof the part numbers and descriptions right as well. Is this possible?SolidworksBill Of Materials
