I am using lot of toolbox components.
I am creating bom in my drawing but I am not getting weight of toolbox components in bom.
How to get it?
Make sure you have the weight property (which is used in BOM) set for those components under the File properties > Configuration tab.
Hi Deepak sir,
I also have an issue regarding weights, can you please guide?
In my assembly there are 4-5 sub-assemblies. I have to prepare manufacturing drawing for all sub-assemblies & assemblies.
While preparing mfg. drawing the weight of sub-assembly is calculated through the BOM by adding weight column (which is a custom property in each part & assembly). But while preparing manufacturing drawing of assembly, the weight displayed against sub-assembly doesn't match with total weight shown in manufacturing drawing. This causes error in weight calculation. All the components refer to same material (i.e. MS).
What can be the reason? Can you please help?
You can add another column in your bom and have a formula to total the weight, weight per pc x quantity
Actually total weight calculated is as weight per pc x Qty. in Assembly.
No problem is there.
But suppose if a sub-assembly A has 4 components each weighing 5 Kg. It will show total weight as 20 Kg.
But when I call this sub-assembly A in the BOM of master assembly (say, M) the weight displayed against it will be 22 kg.
This way it causes error. Because if weight is calculated per part basis, then 4 components weighs 20 kg & the same should be displayed.
I am unable to locate the cause of inflated weight.
Would need the files to check. Also make sure that weight property in sub-assembly is not overwritten if that is particular sub-assembly (check under file properties and mass properties)
Properties are not overwritten. Neither in parts, nor in sub-assembly.
Also I dont have any toolbox component
Well in that case need the files to verify the issue.
