    Is there a simple way to have the area (or volume, etc) have printed on drawing from part model?

      Good afternoon,

      As the subject says, is there a quick method to accomplish this?  I sketched up a quick layout for a guy in the office who wanted to know the area for pouring cement which he would multiply times the thickness to get his volume.  I use the SW measure & mass properties fairly often but which can only be used i think within the part (I think this also only gives in square inches right? couldn't find a place to change the units to sq. feet). But can i set up some sort of global variable for the area  that would be saved using the snapshot dialog box below and be set to bring the info over into a drawing where I could link the info to a note?  I've also attached the file.  Thanks in advance!
