Do you need to know if your model is properly balanced? The first step is to determine where it's center of mass will be. Fredd shared an excellent tip on the forum - you can use the free MeshLab software to calculate it!
Meshlab can detect it:
Import your model, click Filter/Quality Measures and Computations/Compute Geometric Measures.
Then click show layer dialog icon. [It] looks like a sheaf of papers (It is under the Window in the top header)
Center of mass looks like what you are looking for. Plus gives bounding box dimensions, surface area and volume.
Lots of goodies, besides it being free.
