mass propertie on drawing

Barry_van_WijkBarry_van_Wijk Member Posts: 38 PRO

Is there in June 2020 a simple way to display the mass of a part and/or assembly in a drawing so that it remains a live link to the part studio or assembly?
I' ve read topic from 2017-18-19 there is not. But maybe I mist a update?
Through the sheet reference dropdown menu I can sellect "mass", but nothing appears.
Material is assigned and acknowledged in part studio

    Thanks. I think I can manage this.

    I think it is a big misser that this cannot yet be easily applied. It seems to me that 'weight' is a widely used source of information shown in the drawing

    I have used Onshape some years now, and I am really surprized that the Onshape team has not implemented this yet.
    We have weight on all our drawings, and it is a daily struggle to manually check the weight of a part or assembly and then manually put it into a weight property we added for this purpose.
