Article by Vipanjot Kaur, CSWP updated October 23, 2020


Now in SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2021, you can use the “Exclude from bill of materials” property in the Manufacturer part properties dialog box to show or hide components in a BOM.

In previous releases there was not a simple option to exclude manufacturer parts from the bill of materials list.

To exclude manufacturer parts from BOMs in the Manufacturer parts manager:

1. In the Library tab, click the Manufacturer part manager.
2. Select the manufacturer part to edit.
3. Click on Properties Tab.
4. Select “Exclude from the bill of material”
