Balance Weight in an Air Piston Motor Crankshaft

Hello erverybody.


I'm using the Motion Analysis 2009 (SP 4.0) to simulate the kynematic of a new air piston motor (With 5 pistons) that my company are developing. However, I need to design a properly balanced crankshaft to maintain the center of mass of the assembly most 'centered' that I can. Although, I need to see a simple point, representing the center of mass, moving while I'm running the simulation.


So, someone knows how can I see or plot the displacement of the center of mass while I'm simulating my air piston motor?


Thanks a lot for helping me!
