Can anyone help?
The company I work for has been doing their boms in Autocad for 30 years in the format you see below.
Is there a way to set up Solidworks Boms to list the Mk number and Part description then list the physical dimensions?
Yes, it's entirely possible to get the dimensions. The first step would be to investigate all of your available options. One of which includes Bounding Box:
Now somebody's going to probably come along and give a better solution, but one thing occurs to me to get a BOM as you show. For each part you could create a "Weldment". By doing so I was quickly able to create the following BOM using the "Indented" with the "Detailed cut list" checked:
So, you can do just about anything you need...The better question is, should you? You have a new tool, and it may be a good time to evaluate whether you should be doing it different, and better.
It will not be this format.
Add Custom Properties: "Material", "Length"
Weldment could do that also.
