For each component that you need the mass of, add a custom property in each
file linked to the mass of the component. Add a column to a BOM showing
this custom property. There are several tools around for free that can add
custom properties to multiple files, especially if they don't need to be
configuration specific. The only one I can remember off the top of my head
was produced by Tri-Mech, one of the larger VARs. You can search this
group for others as well.
Thanks for the suggestion, but it's a PITA to have to add a load of custom
properties, make a drawing, place a view (of a large assembly), make a BOM
and customise it to show the "mass" column.
I feel an enhancement request coming on......
