we will issue isometric drawing only for critical lines which fall under IBR, for all other non critical lines, we will issue as a layout drawing with complete BOM for individual line nos.

Presently in Plant3d this feature is not available. all other cad based softwares have this feature.

There should be an additional option to be given to user for generating the BOM for the selected parts in layout.

Dear Dave,

 

The plug-in has got many errors. It generates only for the selected parts. There is no provision in your plugin to set up the table. Also it will not generate line no. wise. I had purchased and couldn't use because I find many errors with that. Sorry to say, waste of 10$.

Dave, I appreciate your team effort, but it is not a complete one, so I expect Autodesk to carry your started work and to complete this. As you were earlier the authorized reseller for CADWORX, you might be knowing how good the BOM generation in Layout in that software. I am expecting the same.

To be honest, I expect them to as well.  We'll have to re-visit our plugin if the BOM issues aren't addressed soon.  It was a rough proof of concept that works for some clients but is definitely not robust enough to meed the general need.
