In this QUICK TIP, I wanted to cover something I set out to do not too long ago, which was to figure out an initial component/body count for a design I had consolidated using generative design. Unfortunately, this doesn’t show up in properties, and from my experience isn’t readily available, so I had to get a little creative in my solution…then a brilliant and talented guy showed me another powerful way to do this using Text Commands in Fusion 360. Check out this QUICK TIP below to learn how to do this:



Make sure to check out some of those other apps mentioned (OpenBOM, Bommer, and CSV-BOM), and if you’re into programming, the text commands can open up a whole new world for you.

Have a great week!
