Hi SW Community,
I am currently working on 2D Drawing
and I have this task to get the total weight of parts on the BOM and link it to a Note.
Does anyone knows how to do this?
Thanks in advance.

Sorry if I tag you
You can use an annotation that refers to a custom property called mass (which can be configurated as well).
Have a look at this thread:
Why can't you simply pick/use the assembly weight directly?
But what if some parts will be updated?
will the note for the total weight will automatically updates too?
Yes, because assembly weight also updates when changes in component weight.
So you don't need any macro for that. Simply add a note in drawing as link it to assembly mass/weight.
But the assembly is not constant.
All parts may change or not.
So how would that be?
Thanks it worked.
It would work anyway. You can have the note linked to the model mass and add it to the drawing template/sheet format. The note will get populated once a model view is inserted.
Thanks for the help Sir,
it was a big help.
