how to develop a relation for calculating the mass of part in BOM

I AM TRYING TO LIST OUT THE MASS OF THE PART WHILE MAKING BOM BUT UNABLE TO FRAME A USER DEFINED FUNCTION.I WANT TO RELATE THE MASS WITH THE DENSITY AND VOLUME.

Sagar,

I cannot identify the difference from your pictures.

Weigh your model once again

In Creo 2.0 open a part, click File > Prepare > Model Properties.

Then click change in Mass Properties row and click Generate Report in Mass Properties dialog box.

Go back to drawing and update its contents to see proper value in MASS column.

Sagar,

what parameter is entered in MASS column in repeat region ?

I guess that your models were not weiged...

MARTIN ,

That's what I am asking which parameter should I enter to get mass listed of all the parts in the BOM. (Like for part serial number we enter RPT - INDEX.)

asm.mbr.PRO_MP_MASS THIS IS NOT COMING IN MY SYSTEM.I HAVE ATTACHED THE IMAGE THAT ALL OPTIONS ARE COMING UNDER mbr CATEGORY

Re: how to develop a relation for calculating the mass of part in BOM

Use User Defined and enter PRO_MP_MASS

THANKS IT IS COMING BUT THERE IS A VARIATION IN MASS SHOWING IN BOM AND MASS SHOWING IN PART MODELING.

Thanks Martin I got it now.

Re: how to develop a relation for calculating the mass of part in BOM

Hi Martin,

I have a doubt in similar context. In my assembly there are several sub-assemblies having quantity greater than one. The weight that is shown in BOM table is only for one and hence my total weight does not come right. How can I multiply weight with quantity?
