Exclude component from BOM

Hi,

Sometimes I have component that I don't want to see in BOM, like test points.

How to tell F3E - don't include that component in BOM?

Thanks!

Hi @silvio3105 

I hope you are doing well!

For Exclude component from BOM, you can create variant firstly and then uncheck the parts you don't want to show.

And then you need to select the variant you make when you Save BOM file

Please have a try to see if it works for you.

I found that solution. Creating a variant just to exclude screw holes, visuals(logos etc.) is really stupid way to solve this.
New library workflow is WIP, right?
If yes, mark this as feature request for new workflow.

Hi @silvio3105 

Would you mind describing more about the workflow you want?

I will bring it to the develop team to see if we can do some improvement for it.

Thanks in advance!

Just add option for every device/component(no matter what footprint) to set do you want that component in BOM.
I guess F3E exports VCC and GND marks to BOM also.

Hi @silvio3105 ,

 

So just to clarify the default BOM ulp (that's what the current system uses) will exclude any devices that don't have packages and if my memory serves any devices that don't have copper in their packages. So supply symbols are automatically excluded, as well as logos that are just on silkscreen.

This feature will likely be implemented once we have a built-in BOM system and are no longer reliant on the BOM ulp. I'll log it.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

 

Best Regards,
