Does anyone know if it is possible to create a Summay type BOM for Pipe in a routing assembly. I need a Total length of all of the Cut Lengths for a specific Pipe Size.
See if this link helps you.
I would like to take this one step farther. I want to know the minimum standard length pipes I need to make each cut length in the model. Ex. If the model contains a 10' pipe and two 11' foot pipes and I have to buy the pipe in 21' lengths the calculation would tell me that I need two 21' lengths to make the three needed pipes. This example is easy to do in your head but when you have over 100 pieces of pipe with 20 or more unique lengths this would be extemely valuable.
Ahhh yes. The "cut stock" problem or some people might call it the "knapsack problem." This is called an NP-hard problem. There is software out there that can do this for you, but you have to enter the information in yourself.
I've wanted to create an add-in for a while now, but haven't had the time.
