Automating Bill of Materials for CAD Software


Adept automates the creation of an Excel-based Bill of Materials for AutoCAD, SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor. When creating a Bill of Material, Adept gives you several configuration options. For example, you can choose to output to an indented or flat file format and save the settings. If you’re using SolidWorks or Autodesk Inventor, Adept has the ability to track quantities of parts and assemblies. For calculating quantities, Adept considers the Bill of Material status assigned within the CAD application (e.g., suppressed, excluded from BOM, BOM structure of Reference, etc.). SolidWorks users can also choose to output configuration-specific information.

  • Use an easy, wizard-based interface to create a Bill of Material
  • Choose appropriate database columns to output to Excel, including attached part count, if required
  • Create Bill of Materials for AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, and SolidWorks, including SolidWorks configurations
  • Choose from a detailed, indented or a top-level, non-indented report
  • Automatically attach resultant file as a Parent or a Child
  • Easily edit resultant file in Microsoft Excel, if required
  • Save exported file for reuse
