Mass Properties

Mass Properties

I have a part that is made of Kydex T www.matweb.com has the density listed as 1.35 g/cc, in Wildfire 4.0 I have my units set to millimeter Kilogram Sec (mmKs).

If I go to Mass Props and set the Density 1.35 am I going get the correct values for the Mass? ( so far I don't think so)

Is there a config.pro option to turn off the scientific notaion in the Mass Properties dialogue box?

Does anybody have any ideas?

Steve

Hi Steve,
You can fiddle till you get the right answer or you can set your Kydex T up
as a material and set the density in there. This is a more robust method.
Once you have made the material apply it to your part and you should see
accurate results from a mass query.

Hope this helps.
