Bills of Materials in Assembly Documents

You can create bills of materials (BOMs) in assembly files.

Create a BOM in an assembly by clicking Insert > Tables > Bill of Materials. After setting parameters in the PropertyManager, click in the graphics area to place the BOM.

BOMs appear in the Tables folder in the FeatureManager design tree. The name of the configuration to which a BOM applies appears beside the BOM feature.

After creating an assembly BOM and saving the assembly, you can insert the BOM into a referenced drawing. Optionally, you can link the assembly BOM and the drawing BOM.

The balloon status column is not supported in BOMs in assembly files.
