Hello. I am trying to create a custom BOM in Solidworks PDM but the custom properties are not filling out. I can get the title head to show but the value isn't showing. Any ideas?
Could you share any files, pictures or explanation of what you are trying to do..????
i am trying to link these new custom properties to the bom that shows in the bom. As you can see the title heads pop up but the values dont show. does it have to be an assembly?
Do you have the columns linked to the correct Custom Property??
I believe so, do you have an example of all the correct settings in a variable to make it show? Under the variable, I created a new one and linked it to my new custom property. I then went to bom and added a column called that and linked it to the variable I just created. Maybe my settings are off?
can you get the bill to work in an assembly?
no i just tried
i would see about getting it to work in a small assembly then try to get it to work in pdm. good luck.
try creating a table, instead of a bom. Bom is for assembly and a table should work like a weldment cut list
that would allow you to pull info out of just parts ?
you can't create a table from pdm
i could not get the weld table to work on a non weld featured part either. So that there lays the problem. Enhancement request time.
i dont believe so as i am using a regular bom for normal part
i think that the bom in the part is what is killing it. may have to be an assembly. No on that one i can get a bom for a part, and change all the tabs to get the properties for that part.
if you can do this for a drawing should you be able to make the same kind of template for pdm?
Good luck cause I only had PDM at a temp job and did not get to do much more than check in parts.
Every website and video makes it seem so easy i don't understand where i could be messing up
