How to get Bill Of Material

By bjan ansari on 05 Oct 09:28 2 answers 148 views 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?
Regards

    If you're placing a BOM table in the drawing of a 'part' you will only get one line in the BOM because solidworks sees it as a single part.

    To get multiple lines in a BOM automatically, you need to place the BOM table in a drawing of an 'assembly' of parts.

    Is the file in your drawing an assembly?

    Kindly,
    Rob
