Can anybody help about how to find out weight of any component in Advance Steel. I know we can use BOM to do that but We have to check in Model what is the way to measure?
You can get the model weight by using the Total weight calculation and assembly weight calculation functions avaliable for model use. You can find those commands in the “Checking” tab of “Extending modeling” ribbon category.
You can find more information about those functionallity in the AS 2013 User guide (http://www.graitec.info/Common/Downloads/Documentation/AS-User-guide-2013-EN-Metric.pdf) – page 127
You can Hiligh your part and type in “List” if your running AS w/ AutoCadd Other wise double click on the part and go to AS Properties, click on the properties and the weight is in there Also
To find the weight of any component in Advance steel:
1.Select the component
2.Select Center of gravity and total weight calculation on the Extended modeling tab Checking panel
If nothing is selected the entire model will be calculated,however if you just select a component only that component will be calculated.
See attached screen shots.
Hope this helps.
