How do you generate Center of Gravity on Drawing?

Recommended Posts

I need to place the center of gravity of an assembly on a drawing. could someone help me with this one? I know how to make the COG appear in the actual assembly but not on the drawing. Is there something I have to mess with when I am editing the views?

 

I am using inventor 10.

Center of gravity covers a few things in Inventor so can I have alittle more info on what your doing.

what do you mean by this did you drive the constraint and monitor the center of gravity??

Well in the assembly file I go to the view menu and there is an option that will toggle the Center of gravity on and off. When I go to the drawing file however, I have no idea how to show this center of gravity.

I was working on the same thing, here's how I got the COG into a drawing:

In the drawing file, expand the drawing view you're interested in. Find the part and right click on it, then click 'Center of Gravity' and it will automatically add a point at the COG in that drawing view.

that only works in 2009 and 2010. If you need to get center of gravity in an older version or a little more robust method in the newer versions you can try the add in on cbliss.com
