Style conflict - Drawing template - BOM

405 Views, 4 Replies
11-22-2011 10:44 AM

I created a drawing template, saved on companies common drive, not local. When I created it I also created BOM to be filtered for certain iproperties. When I go "new" and open a new drawing file from the template I get the message about the style conflict and when open BOM in a new drawing I get default columns not the columns I set up in iproperties.

Can anyone guide me thru the process of setting up/changing styles?

Unless I misunderstand your question, it sounds like you need to:

 

1) Make sure your Project is set to "Use Style Library = Yes" (See 1st attachment)

 

1) Open the template, make sure that the styles are set the way you want them, and then go to the Manage tab and click Save in the Styles and Standards section. (2nd attach)

 

2) This will bring up the dialog box (3rd attach) with all the styles that are different between the template you have open and the library.  Toggle the "No" to "Yes" on the ones you want to save to library--or choose "Yes to All"--and choose OK, which will result in a warning that the overwrite cannot be undone, so make sure you really want to make these changes the syle library.

 

3) Once the Save is completed, exit the template, and open a new drawing file from the template, and the style conflicts should be gone.

 

Hope that helps, and I hope someone will correct me if I'm going down the wrong path.

Just an additional clarification: Inventor uses the terms BOM and Parts List for two related but distinct entities.  You are writing about a Parts List style, not BOM, which resides only in an assembly.  The parts list uses information from the BOM to display.  They're just words, but common use of terms helps communication.

Sam, can you tell me why my solution described above works only for one day?  The next morning, when I create a new dwg from the template, the style conflict error resurfaces and I have to go back thru the save styles to library process.  Then I won't have any more conflicts all day.

 

Perhaps a clue is in the styles that conflict--and they are always the same ones--so here's a screen shot for observation.

Thanks,

I know that.

I created assembly template for BOM with certain values. Also created drawing template with parts list that calles out only custom values same like those in assembly BOM. Now I expect any parts list opened from a drawing template to have same columns like the ones in asseblies BOM.
