how the bom cell value is permanently linked to part or assembly in solidworks? can i copy that cell link into general Table?
I'm not sure as how you can fill in the QTY in general automatically. You need to do it manually OR work on some kind of macro that will create a general table with required values or populates the information it it.
The other method which I would recommend would be to use a customized BOM table with required columns and use that instead of general table.
I really like your commitment to SolidWorks, I am curious to know where (city) are you working other than blogging.
Thanks for the compliments, I'm based in Chandigarh, India.
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Santhosh.
Check if attached video helps in linking general table cell to file properties.
You might also find this post helpful for your future reference.
Thanks a lot for your time to attach a video for our understanding. Appretiate it!
In the video you have linked "Description" Cell to the general table, but what i was trying to do is link Quantity cell to the general table for a particular component. so that i can make custom table, which is more suitable for various production components.
I have attached a screen shot of what iam trying to do for better understanding , as a picture speaks a lot than writing!.
Thanks a lot,
I really like your comitment to solidworks, I am curious to know where (city)are you working other than bloging.
I was just wondering if you or anybody could help me to start writing the macro for this situation, as it is proving to be a challenging for a beginer (1 year experiance in solidworks)
Thanks a lot...
Using BOM will be much easier as you can change the format as required. Can you give BOM as a try first before taking the macro route.
Thanks a lot Sir,
