Dear All user SolidWorks,
I want to create a template Bill Of Materials, but at the Bill Of Materials are included isometric view of the parts list.
I included a picture that I want BOM templates.

You can't do that and will have to generate this manually. You can add an extra column in the BOM template and then later on add the picture or ISO views manually.
You might want to add an Enhancement Request
Maybe Samu can make this?
The closest you are going to come to this is if you select your BOM and on the left
side there are three arrows, click them you will see a fly out column that shows whether
the item has been ballooned. If you hover over the item you will see an image of that
part. It does not stay but like I said that is the closest for now.
Something like this could be also cooked up:
Is that a macro? How is that setup because that is pretty cool!!!!
Scott, it is part of add-in but maybe someone could make similar macro or even fit the small views in the table, I just tested the preview thing if it could be done.
What add-in is that a part of?
Scott, it is currently only in my development add-in where is all kind of crap and for time to time I move usable features to SPN-Tools or other packages depending what those features actually do. Maybe this will end up somewhere after some testing. It would be fun to see the small views in bom columns updating automatically, but have to see if this kind of stuff is usable.
How to make this BOM?
i want to try make BOM but can not display appropriate with your show in the video.
please explain me in detail.
Abdul, If you look at what I responded I asked basically the same thing as you.
I am interested in this. I suspect that Samu will get back to us on how to do this.
SInce this is your thread it will be easy to find under your personal discussions.
OK. We waiting Samu.
Some modifications made:
- Multisheet support enabled
- Views updating happens when: drawing is updated, when bom columns are changed or when active document is changed
- Automatic view removal when preview column is removed
Have to see if the splitted bom option will be enabled in some day.
Just mailed the first alpha version of this to Abdul, interested to hear how badly it will crash New functionality is somewhat shown in this video:
Works currently for one sheeted drawings only and needs that the BOM is not splitted. Everytime drawing is rebuilded the views are updated and if user wants to get rid of the views he/she can remove the "preview" column from the BOM and rebuild the drawing.
Some progress made, still waiting users to report conclusions. Nowadyas this should be working whit splitted BOMs and more options will be added in near future.
