How does one apply density to a scaled down part in 3D?

Density is done in the material properties of the part

I have an assembly and I found out its center of mass by applying density after converting the assembly file to a part file. After having scaled down the part I am unable to apply density to.

@De_3d, How did you scale it? Part copy I assume. It works for me meaning I can change density.

Is this your workflow?

1. In a new part insert a part copy of the assembly.

2. Save that part

3. In a second new part insert a part copy of that part with a different scale than 1.

I'm not sure why scale would matter. A scale of 1 is also a scale that just happens to be 1.
