Pulling Assembly Visualization Data into Project Properties/Equations

Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to pull data from Assembly Visualization into equations or project properties?

I am just trying to pull the data of quantity for an assembly and use this data in an equation if possible.


I have an assembly with multiple of the same lug and a drawing for this lug. What I intend to do is have the drawing of the lug and then the quantity would automatically be updated through the Assembly Visualization data. The number of lugs used would depend on how big the assembly is for each different job so for instance if I added 4 more lugs then the Assembly Visualization would see there are 2 more and update the quantity automatically.

The image attached is the process I wish to use (Maybe there is a much simpler way which I am not aware of using API or something but I have 0 knowledge of that and I dont like just copying and pasting code as I dont know what it means if I want to change it in the future)


So if anyone has any suggestions that would be amazing.
