The Volume Calculator plugin created by TGI is a great plugin that allows you to calculate the volume of certain objects. It works really well and has a simple menu to fill out. The menu gives you the option of the units to be used, which layer to place the NEW object on (be aware that this plugin does create a new object that is not the original). You also have the option to hide sides and the original object and finally what color to make the new object. I recommend using a certain color style to differentiate from volume measurements and the actual object.
This tool has a drawback it will only allow you to find the volume of objects that are grouped or a component. You cannot simply just highlight objects and find the volume. NOTE: to use this plugin you need to create a group or component, then right click it and click “Volume”.
Overall, the Volume Calculator plugin created by TGI is a great tool to have to get some more insight into your model. At the time of this review this plugin is free and is available at www.cad-addict.com. I give this plugin 3 out 5 stars.
