```You can also use the solidworks Bom to do you just need to select the
template bom-weight. But be careful if you different units SW will report
whatever units the item was made in. You can also use Mass properties in the
Assembly

```Thanks for the tip, but can I also get SW to calculate the "total weight".
ie if part 1 weighs 3 lbs and there's qty 12, total weight = 36???

Thanks again.
