Hello again guys,
I have the following problem:
I want to make a BOM at EPDM, that meets my needs , and includes the column "Measure Unit".
I want "Measure unit" to get the following values: Pieces, Kg, m.
I try to make a variable (i call it "measure Unit") and give it a new block (Customproperty) which has the attribute called "Measure Unit".
I've tried several ways to make the Part's Data Card, and the most recent is by creating a list called "MU list", which has some values (pcs, kg,m)..
I go then to my Part's Datacard, and try to make a "Measure Unit" Combobox Dropdown (or an other field type), and i assign to it, the MU list, and the "measure unit" variable.
Then, I go to the BOM-building tab, and make a new column as follows ("Measure Unit" column):
Then, i get back to a part data card, I change its M.U. value (eg. to "kg"), the data card is saved, but no value shows up at my BOM.
What have I done wrong?
thank you for your time!
The variable "Measure Unit" you have created is only a piece of text that lets you know what type of unit should be assigned to the quantity in the BOM.
The value comes from another variable - in your column view I see the variable "QTY" - that is the value you are looking for.
QTY: 1 MeasureUnit:pcs
