    How can I find center of gravity? Is there any command?

    Click on Analyze header Then Mass properties.

    Working with solids its volume centroid.

    For surfaces it's area centroid You can select multiple surfaces or solids and get the total collective centroid without doing moments or you can ge them individually and do the moments ...whatever.

    Hope that sort you out

    if you want to get the CG of an individual surface or solid then you can use this command:
    analyze>mass properties>area centroid (for a surface)
    or
    analyze>mass properties>volume centroid (for a solid)

    If you want to get the centroid of a system of many surfaces and solids , then i think you need rhinomarine or Orca3d. In rhinomarine and orca there are options for assigning density to a material and one can get the CG of the whole system.
