1. how to get total moment of inertia of a assembled body... some parts are from chosen from solid works model ( .step file ) and some are in simulink defined ... i would like to know how to get total MI,CG of assemble structure... 2. while interfacing with sim mechanics and solid works through inastall_addons('xxx.zip') i am getting error ... permission denied at 52 line "while unzip"...but i am logging through admin account...still getting the error.. please help me .. what additional setting I need to do in windows side(windows 8)...

To get the moment of inertia of a set of bodies, you can use the Inertia Sensor block in Simscape Multibody. It lets you measure the inertial properties for collections of body elements in your Simscape Multibody model.
As for the unzip error, try unzipping the file manually to make sure you have the correct permissions.
