Center Of Gravity

Hi.
I understand you can obtain center of gravity in parts and assembly if you assign material mass. Is there a way for you to show the COG on a drawing so measurements can be shown too?

    The only work around I have come up with is mating a part, ie ball or arrow in at the C of G which will show up in the drawing.

    If you could get mate connect to show up in the drawings I would use that but don't think they do yet.

    Thanks for the reply. I ended up doing something similar with two disc that have minimal depth so they show up in drawings

    We need a better solution for C of G.  A constant frustration using workarounds.
