    Create a parts list that includes TOP / BOTTOM data?

      Is there a way to generate a BOM from the layout file, that includes whether the part is on the TOP or the BOTTOM?

      I hand-build a lot of boards, and I usually have to manually mark the BOM (generated from the schematic) by hand, looking at the board file to figure out where the parts are located.

      It would be nice to generate a BOM from the layout, and include a column that says "top" or "bottom" for each part.

      OR - a BOM for the top only, and a BOM for the bottom only - that's probably the best format I could hope for.

       

      Thanks
