    How to export SolidWorks BOM include selected Assembly & its custom properties in Excel with Detail Numbering?

    Ken Foong

      I found SolidWorks CAD has a limitation that couldn't export a BOM include the selected top level assembly in the BOM plus its custom properties.

      I have difficulty to create the BOM manually everytime since the level affect on the item number.


      For instance

      Current BOM structure

      Header 1Header 2Header 3
      Item NoDescQty
      1.0sub-part A1
      2.0sub-assem A1
      2.1sub-assem A part 12
      2.2sub-assem A part 21
      3.0sub-part B5


      Desired BOM structure


      Header 2Header 3
      Item NoDescQty
      1.0Main Assembly1
      1.1.0sub-part A1
      1.2.0sub-assem A1
      1.2.1sub-assem A part 12
      1.2.2sub-assem A part 21
      1.3.0sub-part B5
