See my post under BOM's. I work for a small steel fabricator that manufactures high quality heavy equipment attachments, such as buckets for excavators, etc. Is there anyone out there doing the same thing, with Solidworks? My boss is not too imprssed, so far. He says it takes longer that it does using Autocad R14 (their other CAD package), and with the BOM issues I'm now having, I may be out the door, and he will feel as if he wasted the considerable money it cost to get Solidworks up and running. So, if you are doing what I am doing, can you give me some guidance? How do you handle weldments vs assemblies? How do you do your BOM's? Drop me note if you can help.
