xlBOM with thumbnails is a SOLIDWORKS add-in that exports SOLIDWORKS Bill of Materials with size customizable thumbnails to Excel.

SKU: xlBOM-Premium Category:


In 2019, SOLIDWORKS® introduced the feature to export BOMs with thumbnails to Excel. xlBOM with thumbnails extends this feature with more needed options and targets older versions of SOLIDWORKS® as early as 2014 x64.


Microsoft® Office Excel installation not required

xlBOM does not rely on the slow Microsoft® Office Excel Interop during export. Microsoft® Office Excel doesn’t have to be installed on your machine. Exported spreadsheets have the xlsx extension.

Custom sizable thumbnails:

Your thumbnails can range in size from 16×16 pixels all the way to 256×256 pixels.

Export thumbnails locally:

Thumbnails can be exported separately as Bitmap files and saved in the folder of the exported bill of materials.

Use your own BOM template:

You can use your Excel BOM template that has your company’s header.

Preserve styling SOLIDWORKS® BOM style:

xlBOM comes with the option to copy the exact font styles from SOLIDWORKS® in your export.

Blazing fast exports*:

xlBOM is able to process a large bill of materials of 138 parts in no more than 10 seconds (*with default settings).

Lifetime support:

Excellent support over our Slack by the actual developers.

    Quick and easy to use. Improves my BOMs by adding thumbnails, although I use an old version of Solidworks (2014 )

  2. Peschel Maschinen und Apparatebau (verified owner)

    apart from the handling of graphics in excel, xxx is a very good tool for documentation of any kind
