Statistics

You can get miscellaneous useful information about your design. For example you might want to know the weight of your part.

To display part statistics:
  1. Choose Tools | Statistics.

You can view detailed information about any line in your design. For example you might need to check the area of the outermost line.

To view line properties:
  1. Select the line.
  2. Choose Line | Properties or choose Line | Machine to reveal machine settings.

Center of Gravity

The center of gravity of a part is the point at which the part would be balanced if suspended from that point. You can determine the coordinates of the center of gravity of a 2D part. For example, for a rotating part you might want to check if the center of rotation coincides with a rotation axis.

To compute center of gravity:

  1. Choose Tools | Compute | Center of Gravity
  2. A cross appears at the center of gravity point. 
  3. Compute the center of gravity again if you change your design.
