How to get Bill Of Material

By bjan ansari on 05 Oct 09:25 1 answer 0 comments

Hi There I have made a Ladder using part of Solidworks which I am attaching the file.
I just can not get any BOM from it. The BOM that I get has only one Row. But I like to see all the parts or Features in my Model in that BOM Table.

Could you tell me, that I am doing wrong?

    If you made this as a single part file, you will not be able to retrieve a BOM from it that is anything but the part itself. You would have to have made each part individually and then assembled them in a sldasm. file. The only way you can make a BOM is to insert a chart and fill in each part individually, as well as identify each part on the model with balloons individually. Sorry for the bad news.
