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??

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.

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

I would like to hear a solution for my problem in a detail drawing for a Part Weldment (Fabrication Drawing) with Respect to Cut list Items (BOM) and to the Missed Call out (Missed Item/Balloon Number in drawing). Here my Question - if aPart Weldmentconsist of20 Bodies(20 Cut list Items in a BOM), if we create a drawing for this part weldment we will show details & Balloon Call outs for these 20 bodies (Cut list Items in a BOM- which is described plate/flat bar/rubber etc.). Is there any

I was looking to have the warning for the keep / break link when changing BOM cells show up on a colleague workstation, but I wasn't able to find the option to display this warning again. I assumed I would find it under Tools>Options>SystemOptions>Messages/errors/warnings but I've checked there and couldn't find anything related to this.

edit: To understand why you have to multiply by 1 (or add zero) I envisage it's a similar situation to having a Column in Excel formatted as text. The math operation forces the BOM to see a number Re: How to set decimal place in a BOM table

I need to add a column in a drawing bom that will show a particular dimension. I know how to add a custom property to the part, then assign that custom property to the dimension, but i was wondering if there was a way to link the dimension directly to the bom, rather than having to take this extra step? Once you have the custom property linked to the dim just add a column to the BOM in your drawing with the model property that contains the dimension.

we use "Use models "in-use" or last saved configuration", so that the drawing views update as we change configurations and also the BOM updates automatically (if it is EXCEL based bom). i would like to add few custom properties to the BOM. how can this be done? ,custom_properties

If I copy drawing with assembly in it, then open that copy, change configuration of assembly. Then change configuration in BOM... if you then write directly into BOM, it won't change file properties of the current configuration, instead it will change the previous configuration while displaying information of the new configuration.

I have a text field in a drawing linked to a part/assembly custom property. The property is a number "totalqty", but could just as easily be "Description" or "SW-File Name". So the text field reads $PRPSHEET:"totalqty" and it populates as soon as I create a drawing based on a part.

By making a non geometry part in an assembly and saving within the assembly I can count for consumables in the BOM (grease, loctite, oil box of nails etc) Well as a suggestion, you can create dummy part in the library with no geometry. Set theirBOM Quantityvalue to A/R (as required).

In assembly drawing which contains some views, I replaced the Assembly model, in all views. Although you need to have a drawing view active to insert a BOM, the BOM is then linked to the assembly itself, not the drawing view, so there is no way to update an existing BOM to reflect a new drawing view.

And is the file set to open lightweight? I find that BOMs don't update properly if they are opened lightweight or the assembly is already opened in lightweight mode. If this is the case, right mouse button select the sheet in the feature manager and select "Set lightweight to resolved". This is one of the main reasons I don't use lightweight mode.

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 don't know if you can toggle off word wrapping, but to eliminate word wrap, how about making the required columns extra wide in your BOM template so when exported to Excel, none are wrapped and then there, select all and uncheck Wrap Text. For the BOM scaling, since it's dependent on the current view depth when the BOM is created, I don't know how to set the zoom to where it's always 1.0.

So, I have a drawing that has 4 configurations showing in the BOM. When I try to balloon the parts, it'll only balloon the parts of the configuration shown in the view (obviously). Can you show the balloons for all the parts in the different configurations on one sheet??
