Is it possible to do this? eg.   "ITEMS 2 AND 3 TO BE WELDED TO ITEM 1"   So that if any of the item numbers change, the note updates   Thanks, Derek.

Click to view contentI added a custom variable to my assembly/ drawing file properties. To be specific "SAP Number". However I can't figure out the way to bring it in my BOM's custom property list. How can I call out this new property "SAP Number" as a global property? I use PDM vault also and have this variable added in there just like the others.

Click to view contentHello,   I would like to export my BOMs from Solidworks to excel. But instead of the top row reading for example "part no,Name,Length. I would like to export it with different names in the top. I want to do this so I can more easily import my BOMs into our ERP system.  Is there any way to do this easily?    Here is how I would like the BOM to… (Show more)

I have an assembly drawing, model consisting of one weldment, one subassembly, two hydraulic cylinders, four HHCS, four nuts and four lockwashers. I have a top level BOM. The cylinders (in the real world are identical) have a left and right configuration. The only difference is the cylinders are rotated axially, so that the hydraulic fittings face… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello, I have an interesting question. I had the opposite problem before. Where I wanted to hide the cut list item from a part in my BOM. Now I want to do the opposite and it doesnt seem as straight forward.   I want to exclude position 1 and 3 in this instance. They are individual parts, but they're nothing more than a length of box profile and… (Show more)

We are looking at using indented BOMs, with detailed numbering.   I noticed that it does indent the numbering but it is very hard to spot, and most people don’t even notice it.   After speaking with our VAR, they couldn’t find out a way, except by adjusting the part number to have trailing spaces before the part number. This is something we… (Show more)

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.

Hello, I was wondering if it were possible to predefine parts or assemblies to be excluded from the BOM's?   We have components that are shown on drawings but are always excluded from the BOM, and if we were able to predefine the exclusion, then it would save us the hassle of having to exclude it from every assembly everytime we insert it, or… (Show more)

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.   So far the only method I have found to do this is to select  'Exclude from cut list' on each cut list item, but this isn't an option for… (Show more)
