DesignSpark Mechanical - Material properties in the BoM table

In this video, Smithy demonstrates how you can monitor material properties such as mass and volume while designing your object using a simple Bill of Materials (BoM) table. If you are a user of the paid Drawing add-on or bundle, you will find some useful tips here on using detailing tools to highlight changes to geometry within section views.

*Please note: The DSM add-ons are no longer available for purchase. All DSM add-on functionality has now been integrated into our paid Creator and Engineer subscription plans. More info here: *
