    Plain AutoCAD? Not sure that is possible. You just have to do the math. AutoCAD may allow you to assign a material that looks like aluminum, or copper, or cast iron for that matter but there is no way to tell AutoCAD the weight per cubic foot (or whatever unit of measure you want to use) and then have it return the total weight of the object.
