Hello,

 

I have the drawing of a room as a solid object and I can measure the total volume. My problem is that I want to indicate a specific height of this room,let's say that it's 3,42 m high and I indicate a point at 2,33 m.How can I measure the volume at 2,33 m?

 

Thank you in advance for any help or comment!

length x breadth(:D) x height : this will give you the volume of your room. (I am assuming this room is relitivitive to a cube)

You could use BooleanIntersect if you have all your objects solid.

* First create a box upto height you wanna measure

* Use BooleanIntersection and select box and your room to trim upper part

* Use Volume command to measure

 

Maybe this would help?

Or you could use the area and (manually) multiply by your height.

The walls of the room usually have an inclination which means that the bottom area is not the same in two meters height.Imagine that usually I want to measure the volume of a storage room of a cargo ship where the walls do not have a normal shape.

 

The idea with the booleanintersection funtion seems to work fine in the drawings that I used it.

 

Thanx anyway!

Thats what I get for thinking inside the box! Glad you solved your problem.

That's quite amusing. :)

 

With regard to the original question, Rhino's Hydrostatics command has options to also make those calculations.
