    My Rhino tutorial goes on.....
    Is there any way to define material mass properties in Rhino? What I am after is the Cg of a part or assembly.
    In SolidWorks and SolidEdge, I can define each part and get an accurate total mass. Is this possible in Rhino?:confused:

    Best regards!

    SailDesign Old Phart! Stay upwind..

    I think you'll find microsoft makes something for that - it's called Excel. ;-)
    But to answer the question properly, "No", Rhino has nothing like that, at least in Version 2.

    same answer as Steve's for Rhino v.3.2, but the Volume Centroid is now scriptable.
    One of these days I'm gonna write that Mass properties script.
