I know this is very broad; but how does Solidworks data cards interact with the ECi M1 Software? Maybe the question needs to go back further- as in, how to part data cards relate to creating an assembly? Then how does ECi M1 interpret those relationships to create a BOM that correctly represents, for example, a toggle switch in a device box > the device box in a rack-mounted enclosure > the enclosure mounted in an RU rack ... all being pulled from a 3D model?


Also, what if someone wants to take a "list", like a spread-sheet of components > sub-assemblies > and assemblies and have them imported into ECi M1, how would the data need to be represented in a spreadsheet or database to become a BOM that reflects the relationships between components, sub-assemblies, and assemblies?
