BOM, Custom parts and the Toolbox

I'm researching the implimentation of Toolbox here at work, and I have a few questions about Toolbox components. As such, I am new to Toolbox and might just not understand it enough, so any help would be appreciated:


  1. Is there any way to store mass/weight information in a toolbox component that will show up on a bill of materials? Mass properties and moments of inertia are critical to us, so we need a way of retaining that information through to a BOM and weight statement.
  2. If I want to add a new component that, say a locating pin (not a simple pin like the ones already in there, but one that has features that will vary from configuration to configuration) , is there a way to set it up so that you can select the pin diameter just like you can select the thread size, and have the locating pin auto-generate? Or is it better to put each locating pin model into the design binder?


Thanks for your help.
