Is there a way to set the BOM ID for a part in Solidworks?
What I'm trying to do is eliminate the step of entering BOM ID's in composer.
Thank you in advance
You can pull the meta data from Solidworks to use in Composer. So your part name, descriptions etc. can be brought into Composer but you will still have to create the BOM in Composer using the BOM Workshop.
When I've been asked about leveraging the Drawing based BOM IDs from SW, I have used the attached macro. You'll note that it visits the Drawing's table and sets a temporary custom property with the BOM ID found in the table. Once this has been evaluated, the assembly is saved to an SMG file and a BOM is created based on these temporary custom properties. After, the assembly is closed without saving as the custom property should not be stored with the assembly in case the parts or sub-assemblies are referenced in other drawings by other assemblies.
