Distribution of assembly weight to legs of a structure

I have an assembly of parts that are on a stand thathas four (4) legs. If you were to distribute the load from CoG there will be vertical forces as well as moments on each pad that will support this assembly. Is there a way for Inventor to show the distribution of the CoG load on the given points?

Does Anybody know how to figure out the weight under the legs of a structure after applying gravity to the top? Please help

Apply Fixed constraints to the bottoms of the legs.

Add the load.

Run the simulation.

Right click on one of the fixed constraints and select Reaction Force.

 

Attach your assembly here.  (my previous response was over-kill, don't need DS)
