Setting Up Inventor BOM To Work With OpenBOM Add-in

In this article, I’m going to present you with the best practices to configure OpenBOM Add-in for Autodesk Inventor. These include:

  • OpenBOM Add-in setup
  • Standard property configuration 
  • Autodesk iProperty configuration 
  • Combining all together in the seamless representation of catalogs and product structure 

The foundation of OpenBOM Add-in for Autodesk Inventor configuration relies on Autodesk Inventor BOM setup which makes it seamless and easy to do. You don’t need to create any special configurations and settings – you just need to configure Autodesk Inventor BOM and bring all properties you need to this configuration. Then OpenBOM will capture this configuration automatically. 

You can create or add custom iProperties to this BOM configuration.Video Demo
