Merging BOM of several products

Top | Previous | Next


The command allows merging model data of several products to obtain unified data model for a manufacturing order. This allows generating joint BOMs for the entire manufacturing order.


To open the command, go to: 


Woodwork for Inventor BOM–> MergeBOM W4I_Bom_MainView_MergeBom



A file search window will appear in which you can select a *.wbom file. The file content will be scanned and included in the opened data model. The included model data will be treated as data of a separate assembly and marked with symbol W4I_Bom_MainView_BOMFileItem.


In the Quantity column, you can change the quantity of the included product. This way you can form a manufacturing order by including required products.


A contextual (right-click) menu has a Remove from BOM command which allows the user to remove the included data model from a list.
