Generate a multi-level BOM in Onshape

Here’s how you generate a multi-level BOM (also known as a nested BOM) in Onshape.  Make sure your Onshape document contains all the necessary assemblies and sub-assemblies required to create the desired multi-level BOM.

  1. Create a BOM by using the openBoM integrated app:
  2. Configure the BOM. (1) BOM type = Multi-level BOM; (2) for Assembly = (choose top level assembly). Click “Create BOM” when ready.
  3. Select the desired properties you want to view as a multi-level BOM using the “Multi-level BOM view configuration“. Click the “Save” button to save the configuration.
  4. The multi-level BOM will be automatically generated and ready for work and to share with others.

The following video shows you how it all comes together.
