BOM parts drawing refs


New member
I want to create a BOM template with a column which automatically shows the drawing sheet references for the various parts or sub-assemblies that are shown in the BOM. I feel that there is a way to do this. Manual insertion into the BOM from a manually created excel sheet seems a bit long-winded on a large assembly. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
The BOM uses information from the model files properties. If you added a custom property "drawing" to each model and assembly, then add this column to your BOM format, the BOM will automatically fill in.
If all your sheets are in the same file you can add the sheet number to a custom prop in the model file's config specific properties. That way you can pull it into any drawing that requires the info. Don't forget to submit an enhancement request for a better way to handle this elementary drawing task.
