Summary: Have the ability calulate the volume of a shelled or hollowed out part and find the specific gravity if it was filled with a virtual material.

Description: I would like to query a hollow part model for the volume of the hollow void. Also, I would like to fill the void with a "virtual material" such as water or any custom material.

How Used: This would be helpful to know the weight and specific gravity of a filled and unfilled vessel for example. I can simulate this now by modeling the filled fluid and assigning properties to it, but that could be a lot of work. It would be nice to do a "3D Fill" of some sort that creates a solid that I can assign properties to.

Feature Affinity: Part Modeling
