WEBINAR: OpenBOM for Solidworks Part III – Purchased Assemblies and Configurations

We continue a series of webinars about Solidworks and OpenBOM. In today’s article, we cover part III, which talks about the topic that often drives a lot of questions – configurations and purchased assemblies. 

In addition to that, I want to remind you that we recently introduced an updated version of OpenBOM Add-in for Solidworks, which introduces the One-Click BOM process for Solidworks. If you missed our announcement, please check it here as well as an example of how it works – OpenBOM One-Click BOM for Solidworks and Default Catalog Settings

NOTE: We had some issues with the live recording of the webinar, so we re-recorded the webinar. It is focusing on managing Solidworks Configurations in BOMs. We separated the Purchased Assembly topic. You can watch it here

Here is the video from the webinar.

To extract data from complex Solidworks assembly can be a hard task that requires a lot of data manipulation. Think about parts with different parameters, configurations, and other settings. Some of the assemblies need to be purchased, so you don’t need their parts to come in a BOM. Some other assemblies can come in multiple configurations and you just need one of them. It is much easier to get all these things together using OpenBOM for Solidworks.
