profile cut angle in BOM

profile cut angle in BOM

Hi,

 

 

I've created a framework consisting of some steel-tubes that are cut in an angle on one or both sides

Now I want to create a list (BOM) of all the Tubes that have to be cut. I created a BOM and got the length of the profiles by using the parameter "asm.mbr.length". Also I got the cross-section by using "asm.mbr.BUW_SIZE".

 

Is it also possible to get the cut-angle of the profiles ? I didn't find any parameter for it.

 

Thanks,

Maik

Hi @MaikTheBike ,

 

I just wrote a blogpost about this here: https://www.buw-soft.de/en/2019/08/08/cut-angle-information-in-bom-parameters/

 

You can download the attachment and follow the instructions in the readme.

Can you also please tag the topic as AFX for better visibility?

Thanks a lot.

I've downloaded the table-files and it works very well. The cut angles are displayed correctly.

 

 

 

Only one thing doesn't seem to work: The first column of the table(asm.mbr.EXF_ITEM_NUMBER) is empty. What do I have to do to get this parameter into the part ?

When I create balloons it looks like this (without numbers in the balloons:

So what can I do ? 

 

Thanks,

Hi @MaikTheBike ,

here you can find the description about AFX item numbers:

If you want to use the creo standard you can set the repeat region parameter to rpt.index

Hi Sam,

 

Thanks for your help.

Now the item-numbers and the balloons work perfectly.
