I’ve got a finished Hexagon model that I have given a “real world” size and would now like to calculate its volume.

I’ve no idea if it’s possible or how to go about it. Does anyone have any ideas?

As a sculptor I usually have physical models that I just drop into a full bucket of water and measure the overflow. Is there a “virtual” equivalent?

Do you have any other 3d software Jon? WIngs3D is free and has this function, Sketchup also does.

Brilliant!

Thanks very much to both for the information.

I downloaded the Mac version of Netfabb and had the information I wanted in no time. I really didn’t think I was going to be able to get the answer.

Thanks again.
