Drafting, Solid Edge, Tips

Ever had to place a Centre of mass on a drawing view? New in Solid Edge ST7 is a Centre of mass symbol. The  video shows how this is done.

It is also worth noting that the Centre of Mass must be calculated in the model before you are able to place it on a drawing view. To do this assign a material to the component (if its a Part or Sheet Metal file) and then run the Physical Properties command and Update. If its an assembly ensure you have assigned materials to all of the individual piece parts (Physical Property Manager can help here).

Nb: Siemens recently added the capability to update Centre of Mass etc on file save, check the relevant tick box in the Physical Properties dialog box to enable this capabilty.
