is there a way to take info out of a BOM and insert it into a general table after adding text to it? for example if i have a BOM table with "part name", "description" and "quantity" now i need to create a new table that takes that info and puts it into a second table with "7+part name", "description" and a bunch of other columns. can i do this with a macro?

Our products have intricate high-pressure tubing designs.Our production team is working on speeding things up. Production manager wants a all-in-one BOM with exploded view of assembly. I have no idea how to structure this so that its a functioning template with custom properties.

I just updated to 2019 sp1 and now find when I right click on a part on a sheet and choose properties, the Balloons box with (Link balloon to specified table) is not populated with any tables to choose from, even thought there is a BOM on the drawing. The way I make a BOM table is left click on an assembly that it on a sheet and choose Bill on Materials. I hit ok and have my BOM with all parts on the assembly listed. If I now add a part to the sheet that is within the assembly and place a

We are seeing in multiple assembly drawings that depending upon the user who opens a drawing, some BOM items that have configuration the part number does not populate correctly, instead it shows "Default". These leads me to believe that the issue is with an Option that is set for the user. BUT, I have no idea which it might be. Any suggestions or other places to look?

Our team is pursuing a different path with BOMs. Per the book,Engineering Documentation Control Handbook(pp. 30-31), and industry standards; we are attempting to remove our BOMs from the body of our drawings — they would become standalone documents.

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.

We are using a named BOM in PDM that will be exported as a CSV file which will then be imported into our Epicor ERP system for purchasing. Epicor requires that quantities be stated in decimal format, e.g. 1.00 instead of 1. and will only accept CSV format. Currently I have to export the CSV and manually change the quantities then import into Epicor.

Custom Material Property If I create a custom Material property in the custom tab, can I reference that property in a BOM or in a title block? Or is there a way to use the source field to enter in a material standard and then view that as a property in a BOM or in a title block?

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.

Why can I not get my assembly BOM to update with the custom properties changed at the part level? I change the description of a given part and it does not update on the BOM. Are there configurations involved?

I have a part inserted into an assembly a three times, it is just a simple tie wrap. It has different configurations for its diameter. In the configuration properties for each configuration, under "bill of materials options", I have it set to use "user specified name" for its part number. Each configuration uses the same name.

I have a BOM which I use for my weldment drawings. Everytime I add a new body (example a new plate or beam) new item numbers get added, obviously. The issue is the whole item numbers get re-arranged and changed. Is there a way we can prevent this from happening, so that the old items retain their numbers irrespective of any new addition of bodies.

I have a BOM in an assembly and another in the related drawing. If I change the sorting on the drawing BOM, the assembly BOM doesn't record the new sorting and is left with mismatched Item No.'s (bubble numbers). Is there a way to drive these to match automatically, a way to link them??

Using freshly installed Solidworks 2019 on Win 7. The drawing I'm working on was created in Solidworks 2016. I added a column to the BOM, which is set to custom property, and the property name field is left blank (standard when adding columns to BOM).

New user coming from the Autodesk (Dark) side and I'm setting up a connection to a new ERP implementation via solidworks BOM export to xls. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to export a drawing BOM with hidden column data included? For example, I have a MFG PART No. column set up in the drawing BOM that is useless on the drawing but extremely handy in the ERP, I'd like to make that column invisible on the drawing but have the data included when exported.

Good morning everyone. I am a long-time Inventor user, looking to expand my CAD knowledge. So far, SW seems to be much more intuitive and easier to use than Inventor. My company has recently acquired a license for SW and I've been messing with it for a few days.

Is there an easy way to hide a cut list from an indented BOM? I only want parts and assemblies to show up. Each cut list item for every weldment and sheet metal part shows up as a part on the indented BOM.

TROUBLE WITH PROPERTY NAMES Hi to all. in BOM there are some properties that end with the suffix "SW-File Name @", i.e. for material "AISI304LSW-File Name @", and others ending as "SW-File Name @@ partname.SLDPRT". It is a bug that came out with the 2018 version, how can I solve it?

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 only use SW2019 occasionally so i do not know if this is a bug. when i put BOM in the assembly environment this will appear and after i clicked the table will disappear but if i will move my mouse in the place where i put the BOM it will show a distorted table and if i will move aside my courser it will dis appear again. Does anyone using 2019 also suffer this problem. Also this one hmm maybe the Nvidia Driver can anyone post what nvidia driver they are using in a Nvidia Quadro K5000m
