Hi all,

Im very new to Solidworks, but basically i work for a Cabinet Company and we are considering switching to Solidworks.

My question is this,

I would like to be able to create a BOM that automatically pulls dimensions from a Assembly. Our drawings are always completely custom and can sometimes be quite large, so manually linking each dimension for every part is somewhat out of the question. I need a Width Length and Material Thickness for each part in the assembly. Ive Browsed this forum and i am not sure that solidworks can do what i want in this area automatically.

any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated
