Allow ModelCHECK to at least read PRO_MP_SOURCE and PRO_MP_MASS etc.

Allow ModelCHECK to at least read PRO_MP_SOURCE and PRO_MP_MASS etc.

Please allow ModelCHECK to at least read the values of the mass properties Parameters like PRO_MP_SOURCE and PRO_MP_MASS, PRO_MP_ALT_MASS etc.

Like this the users could find out if a model hast set its mass properties to valid settings.

Often, there are imported models that get a material file set, but keep their mass source settings to PARAMETERS, and then all mass properties like center of gravity or inertia etc are not consistent. Or in the course of development, this or that material is used and the source may also be set to PARAMETERS at some point, but then geometry and maybe material changes before release, then it's also not consistent.

Allowing ModelCHECK to at least read those parameters would give the possibility of finding files that are not according to standards at all and preventing errors beforehand. Since this parameter is not automatically designated (and cannot be set via ModelUPDATE) one cannot simply run a report in Windchill as with other parameters.
