calculating weight

301 Views, 4 Replies

Does anyone know if it is possible with AutoCAD LT2000 to calculate weights?

I have a drawing of a new casting to be manufactured and I have been asked about its weight. As I don’t actual have the product, I can’t physically weigh it. I know that with some 3D CAD package, you can calculate the weight, but I cannot find anything with AutoCAD LT.

Can anyone help?

Regards,

Gerald

LT is not a 3D package, neither is full AutoCAD for that
matter :smileywink:

If AutoCAD isn't a 3D solution, what is? 
Honest question.

MDT, ADT (vertical market versions of AutoCAD, pick your
discipline), and most stuff I cannot mention here made by others.

The Regions lets you calculate mass properies.
This doesn't apply to complex 3D objects.
But it works on flat objects like 2D shapes extruded to 3D.
Simply multiply the mass properties with the materials density
and the extruded height.
