Hi guys I have created a quick tool to export the contents of Inventors Structured BOM to Excel including the Thumbnail. One of our customers requested it and I could not find another way of doing this so I created a little app for it. Let me know what you think.
Nice, any way the end user can select which fields they want?
Great. Does it work on 64 and 32 bit? What is the procedure\where is the tool found? Does it work in the assembly environment or in the drawing environment. I have installed in on Win7 64 bit Inv 2011 and can not see the function.
Seems not woking on a Chinese 64bit Win7 OS.
Can i ask a question about picture in cell.
Excel do not support insert a piture into a cell. What's your approach about thumbnail in Excel cell?
Yes it should work on both 32 and 64 bit. Its not an add-in its a standalone application and was compiled for both 32 and 64 bit.
Yes it works once you have opened and Assy file. It will do a check to make sure you have an Assy file open. Then ask you for an excel filename to export to and then export the Structured BOM into the excel file.
Just give it a go and let me know what your experience is and I can do a few tweaks where needed.
Oh and here is another download location the first one will expire soon:
Ok I will have to test to make sure it works 100% on 2011. Will let you know. For the guys using 2012 let me know if you have any issues. email me direct at pieter(at)mgfx(dot)co(dot)za
