Composer BOMs?

Postby Mr.E » Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:16 pm

Does Composer have the ability to generate Bill of Materials (BOMs)? If not this would be a very useful feature. It would be nice if we could click an item on the BOM and see it highlighted in the model.

Can you please add more details (are you expecting a table that is automatically generated with link to the objects).

Please describe the outputs you are expecting.

Yes, something like that would be good. It would be nice if the table could be manually edited so that custom properties and columns could be created. I frequently have the need to add a BOM table consisting of a Part name, Part Number and Quantity, but to be able to add other columns (e.g.: unit cost, etc.) would be helpful. Also, it would be most beneficial if when I click on a part in the 3d model, that part becomes highlighted in the table and vice versa.
