BOM (split from old thread)

I had the same question, here was my solution to getting custom fields added to the BOM:

  • Add fields in Eeschema by editing the symbol (E) and adding fields.
  • Then follow BOM export directions (I believe these are part of current ( directions).

I’m on Linux and here is the exact command that worked for me:

/usr/bin/xsltproc -o ./ /usr/share/kicad/plugins/bom2csv.xsl ./myproj.xml

Seems like I misread the first sentence. I thought it said “I have the same question.”. I guess I should have just closed the thread instead of splitting it. :frowning:

A look into the FAQ section might have saved you some pain: How to create a bill of materials (BOM)?
