Do not update the mass properties of a flexible component

Do not update the mass properties of a flexible component

We use the feature of the flexible component in an assembly to display springs, rubber...

Our problem is that the mass properties of flexible instances are calculated instead of being the same than the component.

So when you want to display a bill of material in a drawing (table with repeat region) with the mass propertie, you can not group components and flexible instances.

In practical, a flexible component must have the same mass than the non-flexible component (ex: compressed spring is the same than the uncompressed spring).

An improvement could be to have the choice to update or not the mass properties of a flexible component.
