How do I add lead weights to a solid model?

How do I add lead weights to a solid model?

Hi everyone. I need to add lead weights to the holes in the solid models. How do I add physical weights to it? Do I simply extrude up and change it's properties? I'm pretty confused. I've attached a picture of the holes for reference.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, model the lead ballast as individual part files assigning them the material properties of lead for the proper weight.

Then create an assembly or add the lead files as components to your exsisting assembly.

create an assembly and add the weights as separate parts/entities.

as separate parts, you can apply the appropriate mass properties

You mean create a separate solid model and then add it to the assembly?
