The Demo Download Archive are open for Browsing and the Demo Versions are no Demo, it are Full Beta Versions or Full Versions.

The BOM seems to be very much in development. I was using this, and it is not able to see the right lenght of a part. Many Handwork is needed.

thanks, someplace to start after the user manual challenge is solved. how do I gain access to an English (gringo) version?? I've never used the BOM functionality and as a minimum will need to find it..... does the BOM functionality require each of the objects to be on their own sub-layer or will it also work from with an "assembly" layer??

Hello Art

In the menu Windows is the attribute and BOM. This will allow you to add a BOM table and also add automatic balloons with numbers. There is no automated tool so you would need to create a view and then apply the BOM and Attributes tool to build your drawing you need.

One way to do this and there are many ways depending on the outcome you are looking for.

create New layer
Create a new single draw view (look at drop down in the top and use draw view and not layer view
copy all the geometry
paste it in the draw view - use a solid option flat phong etc.
set the view how you want - isometric, rotated etc.keep as a solid and scale 1:1
flatten draw view - now you are left with a copy of the geometry in the view orientation you want
then select all the objects in the draw view and use the attributes and BOM tool , hit apply to selected
pick bom table from pre-defined drop down or you can add add your own to be available in the drop down
click add balloons, might need to move each around a little or adjust position
and might want to rename the parts this is not easy and one of the downfalls of making a copy of the geometry
there is a update bom so that for example name changes will update
you can then drag a new title block in from the symbols to complete the drawing


Windows 10, Win 7

does SharkCAD Pro have the functionality to create an "assembly balloon" drawing and bill of material (BOM) ?? a solid model has been created and there's nothing to parsing each of the tubes to a separate layer. see attached illustration

SharkCAD Pro's "User Guide" currently is shown in Italian. how do I change it to English(gringo)??
