Create Mass and Volume Responses

Use the Mass/Volume tool to create mass or volume responses. The resulting response is the mass or volume of the entire model or the mass of an individual property.

Restriction: Volume responses are only available for OptiStruct.
  1. From the Design Explorer ribbon, click the Mass/Volume tool.

    Figure 1.
  2. Use the drop-down menu on the left side of the guide bar to select the response type.
  3. Optional: Select a single property if using OptiStruct.

    If no properties are selected, then the response will be the mass or volume of the entire model.

  4. On the guide bar, click to create the response.
