I’ve been working on a script for a while now to export a BOM in the format that I like, adn then to roughly cost it. I’ve seen the various threads on using third party products to translate the BOM into a format that is usable, but I wanted to try a little more.
Disclaimer - It’s still very ropey, and Python is not my “home language”.
However, I have got it working as an add-in from within EESchema, so that it:
- Exports the standard BOM fields as well as any Template Field Names for parts
- Groups the sames parts into a single row (optionally)
- Connects to the SupplyFrame FindChips API to gather pricing
If this is something that interests you, jump over to my GitHub repo and give it a try. If you have the energy, please also contribute to make it better.
The Readme file covers most of the things I could think of, but post more if things aren’t making sense.
