(3D only) Used to measure the volume enclosed by an element or a set of elements and to analyze mass properties. The element(s) must completely enclose a volume; if a volume is not enclosed, a message appears in the status bar. Meshes with inconsistent normals are considered invalid for volume reporting. Such meshes should be fixed using the Change Mesh Normal tool before measuring volume.
|Mass Properties||If on, the Mass Properties window displays the mass property analysis for the measured volume.|
|Display Center Of Mass||If on, a graphic crosshair that represents the center of mass for the measured element(s) is displayed.|
|Volume Unit|| Sets the units used to display the last volume
|Volume||Displays the result of the last volume measured. The unit of measurement displayed in this field can be controlled by the MS_MEASURE_AREA_UNIT2 configuration variable.|
