      Hi,

      How do I get the program to calculate the weight of a torpedo bulb? Since it is of varying thickness along its length I’m not sure what should be entered in the thickness field of the layer properties.

      Cheers,
      RICH

      You don’t.
      That’s something the designer typically calculates.

      But if the bulb is solid you can make the program calculate the volume of the bulb. Multiply this with the specific weight of the material that you are using (iron, lead or something else) and there you are.
