Sub-Assembly Center of Gravity In Drawings

Sub-Assembly Center of Gravity In Drawings

Sub-Assembly Center of Gravity In Drawings

Hi guys,
I have an assembly. We'll call it a gate, made up of a base and lid.(hinged)
To display the COG in the drawing I've noticed you can right click the top level assembly (gate) in the browser and there is an option called "center of gravity"
But, If I were to expand into the gate and right click on "lid.asm" I am not given the same option. I can only display the overall center of gravity.

Does anyone know how to do this? Or is there a workaround? I would assume that If I created a separate view of the lid.asm I could display it there, being that it would become the top level assembly. I'm trying to avoid this because I would like to show the lid's COG in relation to the rest of the Gate assembly.

Any help would be appreciated.

Can you separate the assembly into two parts and then do what you did successsfully for the gate.
