Formulas and Templates

Automation built in

Bommer provides powerful automation that ranges from formulas that are calculated in every bill of materials you produce, to export templates defined in Excel that can be used to format documents or integrate your BOM with your business. Build your automation into your BOM and scratch items off that to-do list and do it safely and easily with Bommer!

What you get

Spreadsheet-like interface

Spreadsheet-like editor

View and edit real custom properties and real CAD BOM data in a familiar spreadsheet-like interface. Sort and filter your data, flatten your bill of materials, and enter formulas and other automation directly into a table so powerful and intuitive you’ll be saying “Holy Sheet”.



Build formulas into your bill of materials to perform calculations, generate text, transform data, and safely convert units, without you having to remember to “do it in Excel afterwards”. Use conditional logic to capture your exact business requirements, and reference any other property or any available design parameter in your calculations. Do more with less effort, automatically!

Customizable filters and views

Customizable filters and views

Use Bommer’s customizable filters and views to easily access the parts or properties you need. With just a few clicks, you can export all parts from a specific vendor, all custom-made parts, or all parts made with a certain material or process, and more. Provide your purchasers with the exact information they need to move your project forward.

BOM Software FAQ

Bill of materials (BOM) software is used in product development and manufacturing to create, manage, and organize lists of components, parts, and materials required to build a product.

BOM software helps streamline production processes by providing the quantity and attributes of the parts required to build a product. This helps the production team track inventory, manage costs, and ensure accurate assembly. BOM software can also enable collaboration among team members, suppliers, and manufacturers, facilitating efficient project management and ensuring product quality and consistency throughout the entire product lifecycle.

BOM management is the process of organizing, maintaining, and utilizing bill of materials (BOM) data throughout the product lifecycle. This process is crucial for enhancing efficiency, reducing errors, and ensuring the timely and cost-effective production of high-quality products.

It involves tasks such as creating and updating accurate bills of materials, managing component information, tracking revisions, and facilitating collaboration among stakeholders in product design, manufacturing, and supply chain management.

Bill of materials software makes the process of creating bills of materials fast and easy compared to manually building a bill of materials in Excel or Google Sheets, and is often times easier to use than BOM modules in PLM or ERP software. Dedicated bill of materials software can also read BOM metadata directly from your design files, helping to save time, reduce errors, and improve overall efficiency in the production process.

Most CAD programs (and other programs such as Excel and Google Sheets) support add-ins to allow 3rd party developers to add functionality for the end user to use within the program’s user interface. In some cases, an add-in is the only way for a program to access key internal data that a user may want to utilize. A bill of materials add-in is an add-in that provides functionality related to creating and updating a bill of materials.

The primary benefit of using a bill of materials add-in (over a stand-alone bill of materials software application) is to keep bill of materials data close to the design it represents, and to enable the project engineer or project manager to manage their bill of materials without switching out of their design tools.

Bommer is a simple, powerful bill of materials add-in for Autodesk Fusion and SOLIDWORKS. Bommer provides comprehensive BOM software capabilities with a user interface that is simple and intuitive, allowing engineers to save time and reduce errors by performing their BOM management tasks without leaving their CAD environment.

Bommer works by integrating with the host CAD program’s application programming interfaces to read assembly hierarchy, extract and store custom properties, store formulas and their results, perform accurate computations, and for Fusion 360, create and update drawing tables.
