Pro/USER's,
I think we may have stumped PTC on this one, so I'm turning to you guys. We have assy's that use hundreds of occurrences of a flexible model. In the end, we like to determine the total length of the models req'd for the assembly. So far, we've managed to show each length for each occurence by writing a short relation. Trouble is, that relation is dependent upon the session ID of each component, so it becomes a manual and unrealistic endeavor. I hope the attached graphic of a simplified example is enough to describe what we're trying to do, and illustrate the problem.
Thanks for any pointers. This HAS to be possible!

My fallback for things like this is to get the total volume and divide by the section area.
I think a simplified rep by rule would work to gather only the extrusions; I'm away from software so I'm guessing the measure tool will gather the volume based on a simplified rep.
