      Dear All,
      Can any one teach me to find out the centre of gravity for an space frame chassis in creo or ansys.:confused:

      In Creo: Go to analysis tab --> Mass Properties --> Click the eye glasses button lower left corner --> Center of Gravity with respect to default coord will be giving in XYZ. You can select a different coordinate system if you prefer.

      Thank you

      Thank you for your valuable point. Is any material property is need to assign for the geometry before finding out the CG??

      No CG is a geometry specific value only. Assuming that the material is uniform. If it is an assembly of multiple different components then yes you would need all material properties (density) for accurate placement.
