qty. of material for sheet metal parts

Hi,
I'd like to calculate the amount of material (in lbs) needed for a part.
I can do this by creating the relation "WEIGHT=MP_MASS(")".
But, this isn't what I'm looking for exactly. I need to know how much
material is needed to make the part.
This relation only gives me the part weight after all features (cuts) are
created. So basically, if there is a big hole in the middle of the part it
will weigh considerably less than the amount of material used. I guess I
need the weight including the scrap. Anybody know how to do this?
