    Exclude From BOM

    Devon Sowell
      Hello All-

      What I'd like to see is a List of All Components, in an Assembly, Marked "Exclude From BOM". Then I could take this list and verify it is correct. Now, I have to Expand the SolidWorks Feature Tree and manually write down this information.

      Is there any other way to do this?

      Thanks in advance.

          Why do you want to do this?

              Hello Joy-

              In the senario I'm working on, the Top Level Assembly has hundreds of Components. We need a way to verify two conditions; Components that must appear in the BOM and Components that must not appear in the BOM.

              Also, for design, many Components are Hidden in the Top Level Assembly; some are Suppressed.

              I could save time if I had some type of List, a List of Items Excluded From BOM, so I wouldn't have to Expand the Assembly Tree and look at each Component Labeled "Exclude From BOM".

              Thanks.

                    Hi Devon -

                    I don't know of an easy way of doing this in 2008.
                    In 2009 it will automatically recognize the 'Exclude form SolidWorks BOM' setting.
                    Also, any SW BOM (either is the assembly or drawing) can be viewed in the BOM tab.

                    It was a sad day at Foxboro... let's see what Matt Cassel can do. Remember, Brady got his chance when Bledsoe went down...
