How to show COG of subassemblies in an Inventor drawing?

A - answer How to display and dimension/annotate center of gravity of the individual subassemblies and parts in an Inventor assembly drawing?

You can use the following simple iLogic macro - when run, it creates/updates the location of the MyCOG workpoint in the model document:

Dim cogName As String = "MyCOG"

Dim doc As Document = ThisDoc.Document

Dim cog As WorkPoint
cog = doc.ComponentDefinition.WorkPoints(cogName)
cog = doc.ComponentDefinition.WorkPoints.AddFixed(doc.ComponentDefinition.MassProperties.CenterOfMass)
cog.Name = cogName
End Try
