how to add in toolbox custom property partnumbers so that it comes in bill of material for me.
I haven't used toolbox in over a year with my last job, but in my last job we used to
add the company part numbers. If I remember correctly there is a configuration specific
drop down box I believe that allows you to put in your part number, then it asks you how
you want it to be displayed in the BOM and you put as the config name. Then add your
description and that wil show up as well.
I am strictly going by memory, but I hope I gave you enough to lead you in the right direction.
I found this inside of Solidworks help file.
I think this is what you are looking for.
Look at the attachment.
Scott hasn't done too bad reling on his memory.
What I do, is for each component of an assembly, in their properities, under configuration spacific tab place the PartNo, Description and whatever else you want to describe that component.
Then on the assembly drawing insert the BOM, double click on a column and under the dropdown box for Column Type select CUSTOM PROPERTY. Under Property name select the PartNo or Description etc.
