The Power of OpenBOM’s One-Click BOM

If you’ve ever put together a bill of materials (BOM) for a product, you know that it can be a time-consuming and error-prone process. You have to manually gather all of the data, input it into a spreadsheet, and then format everything just so. Besides that, you often need to collect all files that need to be attached to the BOM – CAD files and their derivatives (STEP, PDF, IGES, STL, etc.) Wouldn’t it be great if there were an easier way?

Well, there is! With OpenBOM’s one-click BOM, you can automatically generate a complete and accurate BOM with just a few clicks. That’s right – no more manually gathering data and inputting it into a spreadsheet. Everything will be taken care of for you, so you can focus on other things.
