I have an assembly and have a 2d drawing created. How can I show the center of gravity on the 2d drawing as derived from the items in the assembly.
Thanks for any help
I've been using this functionality lately and came away a little disappointed that I know of no way to define a COG (Center of Mass in SE speak) based on a configuration.
It always displays the CG in the draft for the whole assembly. All those with physical properties on in occurrence properties that is.
So what I do is select the parts whose CG I want, do a screen shot of the Center of Mass numbers in the physical props dialog after doing so, turn on the the planes or coord sys in the drawing view of interest, then place an object in draw in view, my CoM block typically, and dimension to it from there using the screenshot numbers. Put those dims on the auto-hide layer, etc.
If occurrence properties could be saved with configs I suppose that would be another way. But don't think they can.
@bshand Not tested, but can't this be done with a family of assembly?
do You want to show the COG from every single part?
I know that there is a macro which is adding aspehere to the COG, if this helps
No, I needed it for select configurations of sets of parts and assemblies within an assembly. One for a shipping arrangement, one, with more components for placement in a factory.
