linking feature tree item to custum properties?

Hey Folks,

Perhaps an odd request, but it there a way to link a tree feature, in a part, to the custom properties so that is can be called out on a drawing in a parts list (BOM)? I'm looking for it to function like that of an assembly with a BOM on the drawing calling out all the parts. Our company wants to track its raw material usage by placing the raw stock part into a part file and then have it called out on the drawing. So it is a part in a part with a one item BOM. I disagree with that idea, but it is what they want.


I am open to other ideas on how to do this, but what I was thinking is some how have some script in the custom properties that would capture a part file in the feature tree of the part and call it up in the evaluated value. Then I could pull that into a BOM or table on the drawing.


Hope that's descriptive  enough,
