Good morning all,   I am trying to make a BOM for an assembly including two sub assemblies. Therefore I was expecting two items in the BOM. However, one of my sub assembly is "dessovled in BOM" (see picture) so obvioulsy all the items within this assembly are shown in the BOM.   Is there anyone having an idea about removing/cancelling the… (Show more)

I am facing a weird problem with assembly BOMs and hardware/screw call outs in the BOM. For example if my assembly has (5) 6-32 x 3/8 screws and (10) 6-32 x 5/8 screws inserted into the assembly from tools box, in the BOM list it would show up as (15) 6-32 x 5/8 screws instead of two diffrent sizes. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or how I… (Show more)

I have a kit of parts that can be assembled in the field in 2 distinct variations depending on the customer's equipment.  I would like to include the drawing showing the 2 exploded configurations and the BOM in the kit without adding another layer/part number calling the kit parts as 1 line item and the drawing as another.  I also do not want to… (Show more)

How in the world does this happen? I've never seen this and don't know why it's happening nor how to resolve. I pick the view I want to select the BOM to associate with. It doesn't even allow me the option to pick it. Does anyone know why?   EDITED BY MODERATOR: Moved to the Bill of Materials space. Please post to the appropriate space when one… (Show more)

When the bounding box feature is added to a part it creates properties in the part file for those sizes. They are "Total Bounding Box Thickness", "Total Bounding Box Width" and "Total Bounding Box Length" also the volume becomes a property but I'm not concerned with that. What I want to do is create a column in the BOM that includes these sizes.… (Show more)

Click to view contentWhen I export a BOM from a SolidWorks assembly drawing I would like to use a specific template in Excel that I have created and formatted to my liking. Is there a way to do that?

Click to view contentMy company makes CNC layout drawings using the following workflow: drop an assembly into a drawing, insert BOM, then open all components from the BOM (RT click on bom row, use open command, this ensures the link stays active). Once all of the components are open,  we hit "Model View" to place the component views one by one onto on the drawing.… (Show more)

Initial state: Part number:  1234, Part revision 01.00 Drawing number:  1234, Drawing revision 01.00 BOM Part number Revision 1234 01.00 After minor update: Part number:  1234, Part revision 01.00 Drawing number:  1234, Drawing revision 01.01 BOM Part number Revision 1234 How to show 01.01? By default, it brings the… (Show more)

Consider a BOM with items like keystock. As engineers we want to model and insert keystock to ensure we are accounting for enough when we give prints to the shop. But, we are trying to clean up our BOM system in the process of a move to a new PDM & MRP system. What we want is to have the BOM show one entry for a given keystock, with the total… (Show more)
