Specifying mass of part

I modeled part geometries approximately after part schematics and, despite knowing their materials (steel, aluminum), I can't trust their masses and inertial properties to be right.
I do know the actual masses the real parts would have and would like to specify them directly (so that density is back-computed from
Is this possible? I'm trying to simulate an assembly and mass properties are important there. Thanks!
