SOLIDWORKS Tips: Measuring Internal Volume

SOLIDWORKS Tips: Measuring Internal Volume

By Matt Perez | 1/02/2019

In today's SOLIDWORKS tip, learn how to measure the internal volume of a complex shape within a SOLIDWORKS model (like a bottle). Once you have this in place, the measurements will update automatically with changes made to your model such as height, width, and wall thickness. You can even account for different amounts of space left at the top of the bottle since you usually aren't filling a bottle to the very brim. You can use this SOLIDWORKS 2018 part file to follow along: Internal Volume.sldprt. Follow our blog for more tips in the future and, if you haven't already, definitely check out our Parametric Modeling Series.
