Hello,

I  checked with Kai and for method 1, there should be a joint_set.k file that comes with the THUMS model. This file has the *SET_NODE of COG of the join along with *SET_PART for each joint (left_shoulder, etc.). Maybe you can check with Toyota and see if you can get  the joint file. It looks like the following:
