Moment of Inertia tensors don't update on shape change

Hi,

I've got an assembly made of sub assemblies. On several levels I have deployable parts (a panel up against a box and 90 degrees off). Whether deployed or closed my inertia tensors remain the same. The center of mass seems to move, though.

 

It's not possible to trust these numbers if I don't know what the tensor is using for a shape and therefor a mass distribution.

 

How can I get the tensors to update with the different deployment states of the parts?

 

Thanks!
