Granted I am going based off of what I saw clear back in 2008, but the STANDARD field in the the BOM changed from Height X Width to Height X Width - Length. So if I am choosing a flat steel shape of 2 X 8 and want it 10.125 long, the standard use to be 2 X 8. But now I am seeing 2 X 8 - 10.125. Where do I change this format at? I want it back to the way it was.
You could follow below steps:
1, edit the steel shapes in Content Editor
2, unhide STDRT_1 column
3, edit the STDRT_1 column properties as below screenshot, Mapping Component properties to be User1
4, save and close editor
5, click Bom and setting button, and set value of User1 to be =<USER1>
6, then you could see the User1 colum in the BOM is as what you want.
I would like to keep my template consistent with what I have. Is there another way? What is interesting is if you look in the Family Table the STDRT is what I want, but when it shows in teh BOM it has the - length behind it. See Screen Shots.
The reason for this is because:
Steel Shapes Component Properties Mapping
When inserting the JIS Lip Channel Steel and JIS Gas Pipe standard parts, the BOM component properties mapping should adhere to below,
You could modify the mapping rule.
