Streamlining BOM IDs in SOLIDWORKS Composer 

Streamlining BOM IDs in SOLIDWORKS Composer

Are you struggling with managing Bill of Materials (BOM) IDs in SOLIDWORKS Composer? Gain valuable insights and tips on simplifying the process of establishing and maintaining BOM IDs within Composer. 

 

When inserting SOLIDWORKS assembly or part files into Composer for the first time – the components do not have an assigned ID for the BOM. Each view in Composer may have different BOM IDs if they are created separately in each view, potentially causing inconsistencies in the project. 

Establishing BOM IDs in Composer

Kali walks us through the manual method of setting BOM IDs as neutral properties in Composer. By selecting individual components and designating their BOM IDs, users can ensure consistency across all views. While this method is suitable for small projects, it may prove cumbersome for larger-scale endeavors. 

Streamlining the Process with SOLIDWORKS

To expedite the process of setting BOM IDs in Composer, leverage the tight integration between SOLIDWORKS CAD and Composer. By adding a Bill of Materials directly into the assembly file within SOLIDWORKS, users can ensure that BOM IDs match across all files. This integration between SOLIDWORKS and Composer streamlines the creation of parts lists and guarantees consistency in BOM IDs. 

 

Maintain consistent BOM IDs throughout a project. By following the techniques outlined in this blog post – from manual establishment in Composer to integrating BOMs from SOLIDWORKS – users can streamline their workflow and ensure accuracy in BOM management.
