Total weight of a part list

264 Views, 3 Replies

i know that this topic could be a old one, but i've been unable to find a proper answer.

i have an already edited part list (because there are parts that come from different assemblies and other ones that don't have to appear in that part list) and i like to show the total weight of my drawing, that doesn't correspond with any assembly.

So, there is any possibility of summing up the values of a part list column.

Thanks in advance

No, since you are already using an "edited" parts list that bears no resemblance to any model, you might as well just import/link an Excel spread sheet that you can at least use the SUM function as well as produce the extended line weights.

Thank you very much.

I'll probably use an excel sheet.

Is there any way to automatically have associated an excel sheet with the part list?

Better is, if possible, edit BOM in assembly, use virtual components, or edit quantity directly in model BOM. Then the calcalted weight in drawing will be OK.
