Showing results for tags 'bom'.
Hi all, I was looking for some help in the worksheets and putting a letter in a row for each symbol in the data sheet. I also was wondering if the general version of Vectorworks allows you to use data tags in 2020? Also any beginners tips for worksheets and making a BOM for the documents would be helpful, like more records or symbols tips. Thanks, Colin
Hi guys, I`m doing allot of designs which need a BOM when they go in production. My setup of for that now is: all objects are symbols with an attached record. In this way I can count the amounts and get information about the materials and give them a brief description If I use a plugin object like a set screw from the fasteners palette I put them in a symbol and attach my own record to it with the chosen length and diameter manually. This is prone to error and double work because al this information is automatically attached to the plugin object by VW. My questions i hope you guys can help with: Is there anyway I can create a worksheets in which there is column that uses my manually created records and the plugin record without the need of a column for each individual setting in the plugin object? Is it normal that you can not 'read' the hidden records from a plugin object inside a symbol like the length? Attached a simple file to illustrate what I`m looking for. Thanks! test for bom.vwx
