This is perfect. Its exactly what i was searching for. But, is it possible to give us another link for this:

I'm not able to access it

I was wondering is there a way to link iProperties from a .ipt to a .iam?

What I am doing is creating a left and right hand part and linking the parameters of each of those and then placing then in a .iam to make 1 part that is made in pairs (for assembly purposes) and it can be one line item in a BOM. I can link the dimensional parameters to the main drawing such as cut size of the sheet metal. I also want to be able to do is ling iProperties as well.
Didn't know if that could be done with "linking" or making a Rule...

Thank you for your looking into this.

This would be an iLogic rule inside the assembly. It would be a pretty simple rule but would be made in the assembly just for that assembly since it would involve the child parts names.
Hope this helps.

How can I get the unit of measure? I want to have a rule run that will take the mass and see if it is LB or kg and convert it to LB but not have the unit of measure on the custom iProperty.

There is nothing in iLogic that can do what you're after. So I dipped into the API to see what other options you may have. The closest I can find is MassProperties.Type and that only returns what it is. There doesn't seem to be anyway to "set" that via the api. Sorry
