How do I get a cut list, for the BOM, from a completed rack? The rack is is made of 3" square tubing and we used the centers of the tubing to generate the rack
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Bob.
I'm assuming you have used weldment or created the rack using multibodies technique, you should be able to create the cut list. Check here for more details: http://help.solidworks.com/2012/English/SolidWorks/sldworks/Weldment_Cut_Lists.htm
