Add CoG and Mass values to an imported part/assembly manually?

We use a lot of parts from vendors and suppliers, and critical to what we do, we need to have fairly accurate Mass and Center of Gravity values for these parts in our 3D cad solution.  Our products are often heavy, and are hung via rigging and brackets, etc. and in order to design the associated rigging and brackets, we need the CG and the Mass to be as accurate as possible in the model.
Often, there's no way for us to know what the material is for each individual part of an assembly, so we need to be able to weigh the part/assembly, and figure out the approximate Center of Gravity for it, and then assign those values to the part/assembly in the model.  Is there a way to do this in Onshape?

Thanks for any help you may be able to give.
