Mass properties for Simplified Rep of a Part

I have searched several forums and cannot find an answer to this. This question is specific to a PART, not an assembly. Is there a way to calculate the mass properties of a part for a given simplified representation?


I need this information when making a drawing package for an assembly - certain features (holes, finished surfaces) are not represented in the part or weldment drawing, but are later shown in the final machining drawing. I do not think family tables are a good fit here as this does not change the overall part or assembly of parts in the model, I just need to show representations of the parts at different stages in the manufacturing process and their associated weights.

 

I have seen two config options for this, force_new_assem_mp_in_simp_rep and mass_property_calculate but this seems to only reflect assemblies, not individual parts or part drawings. Any suggestions?


Thanks,

Scott

Scott,

Currently there is no option for mass property calculation for Part Simplified Rep. You can create family table, exclude the features and calculate the mass property of instances.
