    Exporting mass propieties

    Pedro Dreyer

      Last year I used Solidworks to get the rotational inertia of some complex geometry parts.


      I used the data to feed a MATLAB routine to calculate the equivalent rotational mass of my system.


      The process was quite tedious. and went something like that:


      1-open each individual part and click on its mass properties


      2-copy it and paste it on a txt. document


      3-write a sub-routine in matlab to sort the right information (rotational inertia) from the useless ones (center of mass, volume,etc)


      Without further stalling, the question is: there is some way to direct export the rotational inertia of a part without opening it?
