Q - question

Automatic center of gravity for Inventor assemblies.

A - answer You can use the View > Center of Gravity function to display an automatically updated center of gravity point in Inventor assemblies and parts (yellow sphere with XYZ axes and coordinates).

To transfer the COG point from an assembly (IAM) to your drawing views (with dynamic updates, dimensions, etc.) you can use the COG utility, free for download on www.cadstudio.cz/download. COG creates a dynamic workpoint feature "Center Of Mass" in the center of gravity.
