I have added a picture for linking a coordinate system to the center of mass.

 

Which you can use to place dimensions on to, you can ofcource also use that coordinate system in your draft to place dimensions there.

Why can't you just dimension to the point?

Good qeustion.

 

For me personal it doesn't really matter as we barely use it, it's also an unimportant point for me to add to my big list if ER / PR Man Embarassed. If anybody makes one i will support it and add my company to it.

 

I can't image that nobody made an ER about it once.

Hi @Gyanendra

 

 

 

is there really a need for a dimension to COM witihn the 3D file.

 

In draft You atumatically can put a defined block onto the COM, where You can see the COM better than any point in 3D and where You can dimension to in any view You like.

COM POINT DOES NOT GET SELECTED WITH CURSOR, THATS WHY IT IS DIFFICULT TO MEASURE THE CENTER OF MASS CODINATES FROM ANY REFEENCE BODY

@Gyanendra, why did you mark my (erroneous) answer as a solution?
