Hello DimitrisBalgis


To get the COG of component, you can do it like this (inspire by a piece of code from Bob Van der Donk) :

Scan you assembly to get the parts, set ocompocc as component occurence  


Set odoc = oCompOcc.Definition.Document

Dim ocenterofmass As Point

If odoc.DocumentType = kPartDocumentObject Then

Set ocenterofmass = oCompOcc.MassProperties.CenterOfMass
