Solid Edge Occurrences with No physical properties are shown as having mass in Parts List




I have an assembly to which I define 'No' Physical Properties to one or more items in the Occurrence Properties.  Consequently when I check the Physical properties in the 'Inspect' tab this item is not calculated in the mass as expected.

I then create a drawing of my assembly and create a Parts List from a drawing view.  I include a column for the Mass.  However this shows the mass for the occurrences for which 'no' Physical Properties were defined. Why is this?


This is because the draft file is getting the mass for the Parts List from the part file not the assembly - there is currently no code to look at the 'Yes'/'No' state of the 'Physical Properties' Occurrence property. 

A possible workaround is to override the mass of the Part physical properties and set it to as close to zero as possible.
