    Calculate 3D Model Volume?

    Is there any program I can use to calculate the volume of my 3d models. I am using gmax and can export to .obj and then .stl if needed. I just can't seem to find a way to get a volume calculation from anything. I need to know volume so I can compute cost of using specific types of resin to manufacture my prototyped parts.

    Thanks,
    Evan

    3d model volume

    Evan,
    I know solidworks can give you the volume of a solid model. You can even change the units to whatever you need.

    Cutmore,

    I have access to Solidworks and tried but didn't have time to find the function for volume calculation. I just tried the evaluation for Rhino and I think I can use that as well. Thanks for the help.
