In this video, learn how to generate a bill of materials within Fusion 360. These can hold any number of information on each individual component within the assembly.
- [Instructor] Now that we have inserted whatever views we may need for our drawing file, a final step might be throwing in a bill of materials and balloons. Again, this is a very simple process in Fusion 360, essentially just a click of a button, so I can just jump into my tables here. In this case, I'm going to choose table, and then all I need to do is click on the drawing that I'd like to create a bill of materials table for. So either on really will work here, but I'll try the explode view here. And then place the bill of materials wherever I'd like. I'm going to throw it somewhere in this bottom corner here. And really as simple as that we see my bill of materials automatically coming in with all of the parts, part names, quantities and so on, and all of the balloons automatically coming in with it. Of course, we can manually change or edit these balloon locations as needed, or I could remove balloons, add missed balloons. Simply just click and drag to move around, of course, and I can even box select all of my balloons to move all my balloons at once. Just edit, clean things up, whatever you'd like. But really it's as easy as that for creating my bill of materials and balloons within my assembly drawings.
