Bill Of Materials and Pricing

Is there a way to input costs of material and have the BOM function display the total cost of producing an assembly?  For example, if I have a piece of steel that costs $2.00 per foot and the assembly uses 25 feet of that material, will Onshape display the material type and the material cost of $50.00?

    Thank you. I found OpenBOM after I posted the question.  Now to learn how to efficiently implement the app.

    Should you care to vote there is an improvement request here to add such a function to the native BOM.
