Exporting mass propieties

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?
