Solidworks cut list not updating
Configure the template and enjoy bringing Solidworks data to Open BOM by a single click. If you live in the Greater Boston area, I invite you for a coffee together (coffee is on me). Oleg has been building software products for data management, engineering, and manufacturing for the last 20 years.
If not nearby, let’s have a virtual coffee session — I will figure out how to send you a real coffee. Blogger about engineering and manufacturing at Beyond PLM. This is a long time to gather experience in diverse fields — industry, customers, technology, organization, communication.
Add-in also allows to manage multi-user environment by storing the configuration in the centralized location.
Alternatively macro buttons can be created using native SOLIDWORKS functionality.
In some situations you would like to have an entire Solidworks part as a single line in a BOM.
And sometimes, you need it to have with all bodies as a cutlist. Don’t want your Solidworks cut-list items showing up in your BOM? Simple, set the weldment properties to use the “Envelope” setting and Open BOM will ignore the components of the cutlist when creating the BOM or Catalog.

Designing SOLIDWORKS weldments is a great way to generate a frame or chassis, which is often used as the highest strength-bearing component of the assembly.
My Toolbar is a free and open-source add-in for SOLIDWORKS which allows organize the macro library in custom toolbars integrated to SOLIDWORKS environment.
Oleg Shilovitsky started Newman Cloud Inc in 2016 with a mission to help manufacturing companies conduct in a more efficient business environment.
Newman Cloud is developing Open BOM - new cloud-based bill of materials and inventory management tool for hardware startups, manufacturing, and supply chain.
All these factors can lead to you wanting to create a custom weldment profile that suits your exact needs.
While this can create the exact design you’re looking for, there’s a number of considerations to take into account when you’re determining the size and shape of the SOLIDWORKS weldment profiles.
