Parts list with dimensions?

I am using fusion to design hand built furniture.  Is there any way to make a simple parts list with dimensions?  

Right side 23.25 X 32 X .75

Left Side  23.25 X 32 X .75

Top 23.25 X 48 X .75

and so on .

There's a add in here that might help, but you need to follow rule #1 and make your assembly from components.

Did you try to install the mac version here. The version I linked above was the Win version.

Great! Now I installed and it works! Thanks!!!!

Is there a way also to create a part list in the drawing (Table) with the dimensions in a added column or substituting the description column?

 

regards

No, currently there is no way to customize a parts list in a Fusion drawing.

The only workaround I can think of now is to type dimensions in the description of each component in Design workspace.

Hi,

I'm not sure what your specific requirement is here. But we do have a project on our radar which allows to customize parts list (add or delete columns with parts' properties). Let me know if it is what you need.

Thanks Nick, That is what I’m looking for just the good parts list and a cut list that came out in a professional format.

@zhixin.ni: Hi, I am looking for that functionality too, feel free to pm me..

Good to know that parts list improvement is what you are looking for. We are working on it, including all levels parts list support and customizing parts list columns. Let me know if you have any other requirement related to parts list.

Do you have some information when this will be possible for testing?

I was thinking maybe custom list can be generated from bounding box. so for instance:

 

Bounding box:

Length 18.00 mm

Width: 400.00 mm

Height 450.00 mm

So in Description box we write "$Length x $Width x $Height"  ($ = calling value from bounding box) and automatically fusion on every change accept new data, or through some options in preferences.

This is what I was trying to do today, as I though the properties would support processing variables using the <xxx> format but it did not work. 😞

A year has gone by... any updates?  I don't see a feature like this today.

I agree it would be great to have an option to somehow import bounding box data to the description. It will eliminate errors while entering values manually.

This is available in solidworks and is a fantastic feature

Updates parts list (in drawings) with current bounding box values.

so you get a width, height and depth measurement for each part.

so good for quick cut list generation.

 

please can we get this on fusion!!

Wrote a small script that prints to console a CSV with dimensions (already sorted) 

 

- prints out size report (dimensions sorted, longest last)

- updates component description so it will show up in part list table on drawings

 

 

import adsk.core, adsk.fusion

def run(context):
    app = adsk.core.Application.get()

    product = app.activeProduct
    design = adsk.fusion.Design.cast(product)

    # Get the root component of the active design.
    rootComp = design.rootComponent

    # Get occurences from root
    occurrences = rootComp.occurrences

    for idx in range(0, occurrences.count):
        occ = occurrences.item(idx)
        subcomp = occ.component
        for bidx in range(0, subcomp.bRepBodies.count):
            body = subcomp.bRepBodies.item(bidx)

            dimvector = body.boundingBox.minPoint.vectorTo(body.boundingBox.maxPoint).asPoint()
            dims=sorted(dimvector.asArray())

            formx = product.unitsManager.formatInternalValue(dims[0])
            formy = product.unitsManager.formatInternalValue(dims[1])
            formz = product.unitsManager.formatInternalValue(dims[2])
            print (f'{idx},{body.name}, {formx}, {formy}, {formz}\r')
            subcomp.description=f'{formx} x {formy} x {formz}'

 

 

Save to file, open Text Commands and switch to `(x) Py`

 

Run this command:

 

import neu_dev; neu_dev.run_script("/path-to-file/partsizes.py")

 

 

Prints part dimension list that looks like this:

 

3,Front side, 1.50 in, 3.00 in, 54.00 in
4,Inside width support, 1.50 in, 3.00 in, 33.00 in
5,Inside width support (1), 1.50 in, 3.00 in, 33.00 in
6,Body1, 1.50 in, 3.00 in, 28.50 in
