Measured value as a variable

Hi, I am both a SW and ProE user and am now looking at Onshape.
For my CAD needs, I need to use some of the measurements like volume, inertia, distances as input to calculations that drive the model.
I can then use an optimizer or a goal-seek to drive the model.

This is possible in ProE but not in SW.

It looks like Onshape is following the SW approach.
Will Onshape offer similar features to ProE?
If not, is it something I could build using Featurescript?
