Weldment Custom Properties

One of my colleagues has asked whether we could create a Custom Property to specify the minimum Yield Strength of a weldment.

Thus, for example, if the weldment is made from S355 steel, the minimum acceptable Yield Strength may be 300MN/sqm, even though the spec is a nominal 355MN/sqm.

 

I was playing with configurable weldment profiles, and I created 2 versions of one of the ISO configurable profiles, one in S235 and the other in S355. Sure enough, when I use either of those configurable weldments, the material comes into the party and can be shown in the drawing. I created a Custom Property in the same ISO configurable profiles - 'minimum yield strength' - but I could find no way of using this property in the weldment bodies made using these profiles.

 

I think I probably know the answer, but is there a way to use other Custom Properties from weldment profiles in weldment parts?
