Relation to CG?

Is there any way to create relations to the center of gravity? The goal is to have lifting lugs always on the CG of the finished part?

There are variables of center of mass: CoMX, CoMY, CoMZ

Maybe you can figure a way to use them.

You also can create a coordinate system regarding the CM position, it's a dynamic relation, so after that you can create a relation, not directly with the CG but with the coordinate system.

@abisse_steve, could you explain or demonstrate how you constrain a coordinate system to the CG? I can't get the new coordinate system to "stick" to the CG.

I run into stuff like that frequently and is why I stay in ordered. Thanks for the solution!
