Click to view contentI work for a sheet metal fabricator and we have just purchased new robotics in our shop. The built in Solid Works sheet metal functions are extremely useful and powerful especially when it comes to multi body parts.   The problems I have are when making the drawings for a multi body part: When multi body parts are placed on a drawing they all… (Show more)

Has anyone else had this issue? I am using a Solidworks BOM, one of the columns is manually edited/entered (Not Linked) data. If I fill out the manual  data and sort the BOM by a separate column (Component Ref), randomly the entered cells do not sort in relation to their corresponding row.

Why do parts not have a bounding box, or overall dimensions; applied by default?   At the moment I am having to create a bounding box to use within a cut-list. Solidworks must know these dimensions because it can apply a volume and a mass to the part. Is there a way to drag these through without having to create the bounding box?   I have used… (Show more)

Hello,   I have inserted a row into my BOM, and typed into cell the text I want.  However, when I exit the cell the text disappears and the row show all blank cells.   How do I fix this?

Recently I have not been able to overwrite the text in a BOM like change the qty manualy and if I insert a line I cannot add any text to any of the fields.   Is there somthing that I have turned on or off?   soild works 2011 x64 SP1.0   Thanks Rob

I have created a custom BOM to use as a schedule of openings for our pressure vessels. The BOM lists out all of the flanges in a vessel and the properties relating to the flange. When we use multiple weldneck flanges in a vessel we create the pipe as a multi-body weldment vs. separate parts per, (due to speed) The pipe weldment can contain… (Show more)

Good Morning, I'm attempting to drive a drawing BOM's part number and QTY for a particular item with a drawing custom property. The QTY seems to be linking without an issue, but the Part Number cell doesn't display the custom property text. It's just showing a blank cell.    Has anyone had this issue before and what was the solution?    I'm… (Show more)

Is there a way for SolidWorks to output a BOM for an assembly with the total quantity of all sub-assemblies and all parts, including all parts under sub-assemblies while also showing no duplicates of the same part number? I have tried a number of options that do not work for my desired result. If I use a top-level BOM with sub-assemblies… (Show more)

I know there have been previous posts on this, but still haven't found an answer to the question I have. I need to be able to have a BOM to a top level assembly on multiple sheets, and I need to make sure the item numbers are the same on both (otherwise this becomes a very manual and tedious process). Is there any way to do this, I know you can… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello SW users,   Our weld assemblies consist of formed, machined and just 'standard parts' (no forming or machining required).   However, our BOM properties (usually size) describe pre-machined and pre-formed state. For example, the description of a sheetmetal part will show it's flat pattern dimensions.    Currently I create a configuration… (Show more)
