The SOLIDWORKS Bill of Materials allows you to add Equations to cells for calculations. Did you know that you can also apply a SOLIDWORKS BOM Equation to an entire column?
To start select a BOM column so it highlights all of its cells and launch the Equation tool.
You can select other columns from the dropdown. For example multiplying one column by another.
You can also add a SOLIDWORKS BOM equation to a particular cell to add up the TOTAL value of all items in the column. Add a row underneath and add the equation to the cell.
You may not want to see this row as an Item Number, so you can hide the Item Number for this new row by right-clicking on the Item Number.
Just be aware that the TOTAL is only for values in the column ABOVE the row.
If you set the BOM properties to “Follow assembly order”, it will place the manually entered rows at the bottom automatically.
