Bill of Materials Templates

The default template, bom-standard.sldbomtbt, or Bomtemp.xls for Excel-based BOMs, contains ITEM NO., PART NUMBER, DESCRIPTION and QTY. columns. The SolidWorks software populates the columns in the default template automatically. Other templates supplied with the software add the following columns to the default format.

You must add the custom properties into the parts of your assembly in order to take advantage of the additional columns in these templates.

The bom-circuit-summary.sldbomtbt template for electrical route drawing BOMs displays a set of electrical route-specific columns, rather than the default columns.
