I have no accsess to costing, I have SW pro, others in the office can access it once a part is open it appears in the tool > solidworks applications, however I do not get that option. We have plenty of pro licences on the network.

I am setting up my own toolbox library of our standard fixings. Some I have copied from existing, some I am building, but the ones I am making have none of the Standard Properties as per the ones already in the library (shots attached).

I was just wondering if many of the forum users here actually use the Solidworks 'Costing' function? I know from experience that most companies will actually use an accounting package to facilitate their need for costings and inventory through to invoicing. Having said that, I was just curious as to how many SolidWorks users actually rely on or use the "Costing" feature?

Is there anyway to nest different parts together in the assembly costing? We are trying to setup solidworks costing for small quantity sheet metal/ weld assemblies. The issue we are having is that the nested feature doesn't seem to work well with quantities of one (or any small quantity).We are trying to have the assembly calculate the costing with a nest of all the sheet metal parts rather than calculate the cost of individual parts. Is there something we are missing?

Machine operation setup time units I am trying to get costing going for Machining and I ran in to an issue. While the setup times in the template for Machine "Operation Setup Time(min)", show minutes, it looks like it's calculating in seconds.

I´m trying to use costing to calculate cost for the old construction and use the same template to figure out the price for our new construction as this is cost reduction project. Our product is a box, with aluminium profiles and sheet metal walls. I tried to scroll through help pages but didn't find anything that would help.

I am trying to configure a costing template for sheet metal but i can`t find where to define time for specific operations. In machining template there is a column "Time per Cut Length". When i open other template (for a sheet metal) there are diferent columns.

At my work, we have a CNC sheet metal punch that we use for anything that is less than ~3/16 thick aluminum regardless of whether or not it will have bends in it. From the modeling perspective, for the flat plates, we general model the parts as a simple boss extrude and then add whatever holes/features after that. When we do this, we do not use the sheet metal "Base Flange/Tab" feature and so to do the SW costing, the sheet metal template is not available (as the sheet metal feature was not used

Various parts in my assembly are purchased from vendors, and so I just want to assign a single cost to these parts rather than have Solidworks try to price the piece based on material etc.... Is this possible? If you simply want to assign a cost to a part that has been purchased I would suggest adding a custom property to the part called something like "Purchased Cost" and input the price of the purchased part.

I'm trying to run costings on structural members but it seems impossible to include drill holes in the calculations. I am using my own profile and material and have (as far as I know) set up the required process in the costing template for this material and drill bit, but whenever I try and run a costing I get the following errors:

Does anyone know if there is a way to use the costing tool on any other materials other than the standard: Steel, Aluminium, Plastic & Copper. In this case I want to cost the price of buying and machining wood e.g. Pine, Beech & Oak to make furniture with. I want to use the costing tool to give me the price of the material based on the size of my furniture and the manufacturing costs associated with any drilled holes or fillets etc.

When adding thick sheet metal (getting into Plate thickness instead of Sheet), is there a trick to make the "Thickness (gauge)" column cooperate? - For example, if you want to add 3/8" or 1/2" plate, you can enter the value in the "Thickness (in)" column, but values in the "Thickness (gauge)" column will return this error -

We build compressors for refrigeration and air conditioning. I have been hesitant to mention Solidworks costing to our VP of engineering. 1) For fear that it would be viewed as a magic costing pill.

machine shop costing Has any body setup a template for OD/ID grinding, cam grinding, surface grinding sink and wire EDM?

While costing is a great concept and I do appreciate it's attempt to make design to costing possible. It's lacking a good starting point to work from. I understand that each shop has it's own methods to costing a job, so creating a default end all template would be practically impossible.
