I often get asked, can the CAD package, at the assembly level, automatically build the model to spec and produce a price. The usual workflow is to put in a cost property and an equation where applicable (e.g. working out sqm) and export the BoM to Excel.

As I use iLogic to automate the assembly, I thought it would be an ideal tool to automate a cost instantly too without having to export a BoM to Excel.

Here’s what I came up with:
