    Navisworks doesn't work with solids, it effectively "skins" the objects in triangles for performance reasons. That makes dynamic calculation of volume inaccurate. I would suggest ensuring the objects in question have a volume property from the originating software.
    If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
    Some say beauty is in the eye of the Beholder... perhaps so, but I've only seen the disintegration beam.
    Everyone else being wrong is not the same thing as being right.

    Default Re: Volume from solids

    This is a massive restriction for us:
    The fact that it can't get volumes from 3D Solids
    That it skins 3D objects which makes sectioning hard to visualise when comparing objects.
