Hi all,
New user and new to the forum. I have issues with the BOM; I can create a 3d Object, however when I try to create a BOM for even a cube, the dimensions on the BOM are not the same as what I've drawn!
The dimensions of the cube are L: 100mm W: 200mm H:18mm the BOM table I created reads: L: 177.800 W: 76.200 Thickness: 00.000

Any suggestions please!!

The Attributes BOM is just a play game. Tim Olson have alot of work....... You need to rename all the parts and sometimes are the names destroyed by some reasons. And the dimensions are not useable. Nobody can use this part list for going to the saw to cut to size the parts.

I reported the problem with the BOM with the figures not working right, but these seem different to what I was seeing. However, there doesn't appear to be much consistency between what people see in the errors.

Hi Jason
Not sure what you mean by what BOM data did I use? I did wonder if the BOM sheet was in inches and the drawing was in mm??? even so if I draw a basic cube, there ought to at least be some sort of thickness measurement?
