Component length in BOM

Does anyone know of a way to list the overall length of a component in the BOM?
For example, I have a length of rectangular tubing for a stair, with some mitered cuts at each end, and it's saved as an external component. Can Bricscad figure out the overall length on a certain axis that I can somehow add into the BOM?

  • Hello Denis,
    There is no standard function to get the length along a certain axis and add it to the BOM.
    You would have to write a script to make a bounding box, or something like that.

    The easiest option to get the length into the BOM is to connect a distance constraint to the tube.
    Then set the parameters colum in the BOM manager to show the Length parameter.
