Bill of Materials (BOM)

Posted by with 7 Comments in Windows Read More →

A bill of materials (bill of material or BOM) is a list of sub-assemblies, parts and the quantities of each needed to manufacture an end product. All manufacturers start by creating a bill of materials (BOM).

Several departments (engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, and more) add to and consume the data contained within the BOM. Typical additions to the BOM include stock/non-stock categorization, supplier information, costing information, materials information, inventory tracking and many more.

Export BOM to CSV
With Glovius, you can export BOM data and save as a CSV file. BOM exported from Glovius defines the product as designed (engineering bill of materials). The following options are available while exporting BOM to CSV

  • Top – This lists the top or the first level of components in the assembly. It displays the components directly needed to make the assembly or sub-assembly.
  • Part – This option lists all the parts and the quantities required for each part.
  • Assembly – This option lists the sub-assemblies in the assembly.

The exported BOM CSV from Glovius contains the part/sub-assembly names and quantity. In the next release, we will add attributes like part number, unit of measure, description etc.

BOM export feature is available with all Glovius CAD viewers including CATIA V5, STEP/IGES and JT. For a free 7-day trial, please visit the downloads page.

Glovius 3.4 for Windows is here!

Posted by with 0 Comments in Windows Read More →

We are really excited to announce Glovius v3.4 for Windows. This release adds powerful new features like Compare Models, Export BOM and Add/Edit/Delete Attributes. In addition, we have made improvements in measurement, performance, user interface and export to glovius mobile format.

Compare Models

Compare any two models, and visualize differences in Glovius. Both parts and assemblies are supported. Model comparison is based on tessellation, attributes, and assembly structure. The graphics area displays added and removed material between the two models. Unchanged material is displayed in a translucent manner to provide additional context.

Other Highlights

  1. Measurements are now faster and look better, thanks to filled arrows and improved line thickness. Measuring section profiles is now possible. Measurement placement has also been improved.
  2. Files will open faster with significant performance improvement during rotation.
  3. Progress bar is more dependable.
  4. There is an all new add-on manager interface.
  5. Exporting to Glovius Mobile is now faster and creates more compact glovius files, resulting in improved performance on Glovius iOS & Android apps.
