How do I make BOM to draw "length" custom property from routing assembly. It will show blank spaces.
Also is it possible to make this BOM to combine pipes?
I added variable with custom property but it doesn't work.
the length is not calculate by PDM but by SW. If you have a proper variable on your data card and this variable has attributes to map variable with custom property in the part file, you have to add equation which calculate it in SW and just show the result on the datacard and BOM in PDM.
So I would need "Length" in datacard in order to show it in PDM BOM?
I had the same problem with weldment profiles.
What I am trying to make is exportable data for our guys to be able to order material, meaning it would need to show lengths of all pipes and weldment profiles. Is that possible? To show weldment profiles lengths in assembly BOM, or do you need part BOM for this and make BOM from each individual part?
Because once I export a file I can then manipulate it with excel and vba... and would be really painful to do that with each individual file where weldment profiles are located...
Ok I noticed I needed to set to check for LENGTH in all configurations... but then you can't have multiple configurations.
Is it possible to have or to export the same BOM as in drawing via EPDM?
So it would show all parts from reference assembly including weldment profiles with their own properties?
Damir, you can export drawing's BOM via EPDM as well as EPDM's BOM.
Please refer the S-029566 to find how to show Length in the BOM in EPDM.
About how to configure it in the BOM, I suggest to use that value should be searching in active configuration and if it is empty - it'll be searching in the custom properties. It should work for you and then you can have multiple configuration in the file.
ok due to limited access next year when we buy new version I'll look it up...
