You can display the mass for eDrawings part and assembly files. You can also specify the units and precision for calculating mass. In assemblies, mass is calculated for the complete assembly, not individual components.

This information is specific to one or more CAD systems. See the eDrawings Functionality Matrix for availability information.

To display mass:

  1. Click Mass or Tools > Mass.
    The Mass pane lists:
    Density If a material is not specified, density is assumed to be 1.00 grams per cubic millimeter.
    Surface area  
  2. Specify:
    • Units for calculating the properties. Corresponding mass units are used (grams with millimeters, pounds with inches, etc.)
    • Decimal Places (0 to 8) for precision of the values.
    The mass updates dynamically.
