Physical Inventor properties

In properties on physical tab Plumbum has density 0.940 g/cm3, but it should be 11.34 g/cm3. But in material editor it has right value. What should I do? Maybe it is config file somewhere?

Thank you for answers. After checking Lead in properties, I closed properties window. After reopening properties it is all right. And every time like this: Lead value is wrong, but after accepting and reopening Properties, value became correct.

In English, I think the material you're referring to is "Lead".

 

As far as the density: it appears that you are using Inventor 2013; when I create a part in 2013 made of lead, the density in iProperties matches the Material properties.  Is it possible that the density has been manually edited in the file?

Attach the file here or create a cube 1cm x 1cm x 1cm and attach it here.

Hi,

 

I have the same problem with Aluminum.

If i create a simple new part / cube 10 x 10 x 10 cm. it has the correct weight and density.

But if i derive an assembly in to the part as a surface model the density change.

 

Kind regards
