Inventor BOM template for wood working.

695 Views, 3 Replies

I am new to these forums and would have a question at which I need help with. I am trying to get my BOM to have length, width, and thickness of the parts. I am working with casework and mill work for woodworking. I am trying to get a template set up so i can have this automatically set it self when I pull it up in the idw file. 

If anyone can please help me that would be great!!! I am trying to get everything going and this is something that I really need to figure out. I can do all the clicking and that stuff, but if you have a working template or something that you would not mind sharing that would be awesome!! I will take what I can get. 

Thanks,

Moldy

All you really need to do is include Height, Length and Thickness as Parameters in your parts.

Have those parameters mapped in your assembly and utilizte them  in your idw Parts List.

I've included the rough templates I created.  You will have to tweak them to suit your requirements.

Thank you for the basic template. I was wondering if you could explain to me how I can do this from scratch myself. I am trying to figure this out so when ever i start drawing a new part it automatically places the length width and thickness in the BOM list. I am trying to figure this out and would like to know. 

Thanks,
