Reference Assemblies

Hi, I have a large project, and it makes sense to break it up into sub assemblies. However, many of the assemblies reference the same part/assembly. When I bring all the sub assemblies into one large assembly, I have many copies of the referenced part/assembly.

How do I specify that a part/assembly is not included in the mass properties.
I know that I can exclude it from the BOM in the component properties. I also know that I can set the mass properties to not include hidden components, but that requires that the user re-hide all referenced components each time.

Finally, I thought about assembly envelopes, but that only works for reference parts, not referenced assemblies.

Thanks
Sam
