i m kamal from pakistan, working as a process engineer in a precised parts manufacturing industry. i have 2 years of experience of using solid works. i always search the tutorial to increase my potential of using solid work’s, and your course information is very helpful for me in this aspect.
thank u very much.
Thanks for the information.
Its really useful knowledge sharing.
first of all, thanx a lot for sharing this information, and i hope that definitely i will receive more information in this aspect.
Hi everybody, thanks for all the positive comments! I really appreciate it. I will write many other SolidWorks tutorials the next months.
but if you have only the 3d design from surface & you need to calculate the weight , you can’t use the tools mass properties to calculate the weight of the product , as the icon of be disable ! – so what you will do in this case ?
thanks!- Murad. From –Palestine.
Hi Murad, thanks for your message. A surface model doesn’t have a volume or mass (it’s just a surface without a thickness). To get the weight of a surface model you first need to add a wall thickness. Go to Insert > Boss/Base > Thicken to add a wall thickness. Afterwards you can follow the steps as shown in the tutorial.
It is useful thing , if you explain about moment of inertia ,it may so useful , and ,where it can applying in real world ,
thank you about your information , all the information are evry useful
Thank You Very Much..!!!
I m Student Dip.Design in Malaysia. This information very useful for me. i just completed this tutorial..

Hi Madhavan, go to Tools > Mass Properties > Surface area to see the surface area of multiple parts or bodies. Cheers, Jan
i m mechanic engineer student i have model of car in catia and I need calculate area surface of my model(my model make by a lot of part some of them overlap) I need your help
Thank you so much! It’s an useful information for me.
Hi, we have to re-metal White Metal on bearings all the time. We want to use Solidworks to calculate the mass correctly that we need to quote and purchase, but it seems to be very difficult as it is a cylinder so it is not calculating correctly. What can we do to calculate it correctly in Solidworks?
