I hope someone can help me. I have an assembly drawing consisting of 20 parts. Some dumb solids some sheetmetal parts and some fixings. When i place the BOM in the drawing some of my custom fields are not updating. Parts that have a material attached to them show up under the material column but some don't. All parts have a material attached to the models. For some strange reason some of the parts show there material if they are attached to the config of a part and some only show up if they are in the custom fields of the part, seems to be very inconsistant from oart to part. Also, when i try and add a new column to my BOM and pick a Custom Property the property from the model that i am trying to add is not there, only standard solidworks properties seem to be in there eg SW-Author. When i make a new drawing with just 1 part in it i am able edit a column in the BOM and all of my custom properties from my model are there. I am pulling my hair trying to get this to work properly. Please can someone help me.
