Tutorial by David Thomas

It is not difficult to do. Here's how :

  1. Step 1:

    Open your assembly. Expand the first part in the feature tree and click Edit Material - unless you see the appropriate one in the dropdown list, in which case you can select it there and skip the next step.

  2. Step 2:

    Right click on Material .

  3. Step 3:

    Select your material and click Apply. Here I've chosen Plain Carbon Steel. Close the Material dialog box. Repeat for all parts in the assembly.

  4. Step 4:

    Click Rebuild, just to be on the safe side.

  5. Step 5:

    Select Tools-->Mass Properties...

  6. Step 6:

    Your mass will be shown here.

  7. Step 7:

    Clicking Options in the Mass Properties dialog window will open the Options window. Select Use custom settings if you wish to change units, precision, etc.
