Unformatted text preview: Result of sample comes out to be: C8 x 18.75 x 12 = 66.2980xx in 3 ]. 4. Manually divide weight per foot ( Ryersons ) by volume to determine density of the material per in 3 [e.g. 18.75 lbs. per foot / 66.980 in 3 = density of .2828 lbs. per in 3 ]. 5. Choose Part Properties/Material for each C8 x 18.75 part and enter Mass Density. [e.g. .2828 for each C8 x 18.75 C-Channels]. 6. After all parts have been modeled to proper size, and density has been entered in Part properties of each, repeat Tools/Analysis process to determine weight (mass) for each part. Note: default Mass Density of .252891 for any part is similar, but not accurate. 7. Once weight is determined for each part, Choose Control-A (All), the choose Assembly/Assemble, then with assembly in yellow, Choose Tools/Analysis again to weigh assembly. Record that value as a Global note on the drawing....
