Editing attributes in BOM (Parts List)



This functionality is in Autodesk Inventor and it is very usefull.

 Now I am using NX11 (no TC)

Can I type custom attributes for parts (or modifications) in NX from BOM, parts list?


It is much more convenient to type data in a BOM or parts list table than to edit these parameters in individual parts. Of course, changing the values in the parts list automatically changes the attributes in Parts.


I don't want to change material or mass attributes. The goal is to modify the custom attributes .

Notes, manufacture technology, supplier, status.


This functionality in Autodesk Inventor is very convenient.

Hi @Mountaineer80,

it's not possible. I've read, but I'm not sure that on mold application, the BOM in this application allow this operation.

If yes we need to create an ER to obtain the same in NX design.

Thank you...

You can bulk edit the attributes in the assembly and then they will appear in the drawing the way you need them. I have included a movie show how to bulk edit attributes.
