Select the solid, then select either the Pull or the Move tool. In the Options tab of each will be the 'Mass Properties' icon.
Also if you have assigned a material to the solid it's 'Property' tab...
Thanks for sharing your experience Leonie. Fingers crossed there will be some good ideas that can help those living in isolation.
The project mentioned by Marc in your interview sounds fascinating. I never realized that the Apollo Guidance Computer had played such a key role in the development of modern-day computing and electronics.
Please open attached image for response. There seems to be an issue entering Windows commands in this text block.
The DesignSpark Electrical label is an attribute of the title block which can easily be removed. Right-click on any of the documents (like a report), then title block -> open.
Look for the #APP_NAME...
This period of lockdown has allowed me to explore, literally. Using one of the many mapping websites, it is easy to explore the history of space exploration! Let's take a look at what can be seen.
My name is Papa Valentin and I will soon finish my first year studying Computer Science and Electronics. My project is not something new, I'm just surprised that this doesn't already exist in shops, so I tried to do it myself to figure out why.
In this episode we explore tips for working from home (including getting the most from WiFi), we interview Marc Verdiell who played a key role in restoring the Apollo Guidance Computer and we discuss which streaming service we couldn't live without!
A first look at the LIGHTING-1-GEVK development platform and PoE module.
Never before has it been easier to empathise with members of our vulnerable communities and relate to what it actually means to live in isolation.
After noticing that my neighbours had resorted to pots and pans for the weekly #ClapForCarers, I decided to engineer a homemade air horn to show my appreciation for the NHS and key workers each week.
Most modern peripheral device chips, such as sensors and motor drivers, communicate with a controller via a serial data bus. Microcontrollers usually support one or more of four basic types: UART, SPI and I2C. How do they work and which to choose?
It’s time to find applications for the concepts we’ve learned in part 1 to 3. Digital signatures and certificates are such applications which are elementary for secure internet connections.
Although oscilloscopes are basic instruments, maintenance tasks sometimes require very specific measurements that are not standard functions. For instance, the R&S®RTH-K38 user scripting option allows engineers to simplify railway field maintenance.
We will use Digital Discovery, a 32-channels USB Logic Analyzer & 16-channels Pattern Generator, to test a MEMS accelerometer with an I2C interface. Python script is used to read and graphically present the data.
A step towards new LED components for the general lighting market - Quantum Dot technology delivers outstanding efficiency values, even at high colour rendering indexes with Osram’s OSCONIQ S 3030 Quantum Dot.
This is part two of a series of stories in which we investigate why military specification connectors might be useful for industrial customers. Plus, our top tips for saving money on MIL-spec connectors.
