how to query COG in simulation?

Question asked by Scott Nelson on Sep 2, 2011

Hi,

 

In a part file, I can open mass properties and assign a mass and a specific cog for a known component.  What I cannot verify is that the 'assigned' center of gravity is being respected by solidworks simulation?  Also, what about the mass?  Static simulation requires an assigned material, so even though I can 'assign' a custom mass/cog in the mass properties dialoque I'm then required to overwrite that in the study by assigning a custom material where I've computed a density so that the part volume will net out to the correct weight, however it would seem that in so doing I'm over riding the custom cog that I set.

 

Is there a way to work around this problem?
