I don't want to bump this thread, but does no one have a solution / work around for this?
I can't be the only one who has this issue.
I am also sending off to my VAR to see if they have a solution.
Solidworks is geared toward machinery, devices, consumer products.
Construction industry has never been a strong suit for Solidworks.
A balloon has the option to display quantities.
I don't think you'll get the "where used" functionality out of the box.
You might ask in the API section if customization could address this.
On a side note, I believe Solidworks has 3rd party software vendors who provide add-ins for steel structures.
Thanks for the reply, I thought that it might be a bit difficult as the BOM is created from a selected view.
However it is possible in a program like Tekla so thought there was a slight chance of it being available in SolidWorks.
My VAR has pointed me to some threads that discuss this so I will check this out.
