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!

I am wondering if it is possible to have the Cut List description in my BOM description? I am working on automating the BOM of steel structures and it would be awesome if was possible, I know that you can insert the Cut List description by choosing "Indented" in the Bill of Materials property, but the problem is that I will get two rows instead of one and then multiple length values. (See attached pic.) I cannot use the Weldment Cut List, because I have a lot of different equations linked to the

I have a part in an assembly which has been used 4 times but for some reason I had to copy the relating .sldpart file and rename it...this way I have the same part which has different names in the assembly. so, when I make the BOM, it has not been shown in the assembly as 4 different parts, each of them has the Qty=1. Is there any way to be able to show the part in the assembly as one part with the Qty=4 ? I do not want to make the part names identical for some reason.

I have several drawings that I am revising that have existing BOMS that have external links etc to the parts / assemblies that are called up. Now I have added a few parts to this overall assembly as well as assemblies and I would like to add these parts / and assemblies to the existing BOM and also add teh external links to those items so that the Balloon feature will also follow any changes made...

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 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.

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?

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
