Displaying mass in draft template?

Legend

Hello,

 

I'm trying to use property text to display the mass of the object in draft text box. This is what I typed in the callout text box:

 

%{Mass}

However, it displays this message in the actual text box:

 

Name?:Mass

Solid Edge recognizes the %{Mass} command, since if I type some random characters it says only:

 

Error: No reference

But why doesn't it display the object's mass? Is it possible to calculate the mass of the object automatically and display it in the draft text box? I know Catia does this automatically but I can't find a way to do it in SE.

You are trying to display the "Mass" of the Draft you are working, that is obviosly not preset.

What you have to do is display the "Mass" of the referenced object.

To do this you need to add "|R1" after "Mass".

 

%{Mass|R1}
