[Plugin] FredoTools::SolidVolume - v1.2b - 12 Mar 18

Postby fredo6 » Mon Apr 27, 2015 12:57 am



SolidVolume is a standalone script which is part of FredoTools.

It computes the volume and the total faces area of the true solids (groups and component instances) in the selection.

SolidVolume gives the correct value regardless of the orientation of faces and the position in the model.

It is now based on a persistent web dialog box, allowing you to change the selection or use the outliner.

This follows an interesting discussion in this thread.

Select the solids and invoke SolidVolume
  • in the contextual menu FredoTools > SolidVolume
  • in the menu Tools > FredoTools > SolidVolume
  • by clicking on the icon of SolidVolume (barrel)

In this second version, the volume and faces area is displayed in a persistent dialog box. As long as it is open, any change of selection will show the volume and area dynamically. You can choose your preferred units and number of decimals.

SolidVolume is installed as part of FredoTools 3.2c and above.

Just launch SolidVolume on a selection containing solids to compute their aggregate volume and the total area of their faces.

The dialog box is persistent so that you can change the selection, manually or via the outliner.

Thank you Fredo! You are my hero! :D This should be incorporated in Sketchup 2016 to prevent people for making mistakes in volume calculations..In the meantime we have Fredo Sketchup.

I am sorry, but plugin has some kind of problem with the geometry you can see in the example. I didn't know the volume calculation problem was so complex.

@srx

That's just a bug which I will fix. As long as the shape is a true solid, there is an exact solution.

NEW RELEASE: FredoTools::SolidVolume v1.2a - 09 Jul 15

SolidVolume 1.2a is a minor release allowing holes for a shape to be considered as a solid. The Volume is computed as if there was no hole, but the area of faces takes the holes into account.

See main post of this thread for more information.

Hi Fredo

I was so happy to find this plug in volumes, but it seems there is a problem with the volumes. i had a complex solid an found a volume that seemed very big. So i try with a small cube with an hole (20 cm for each side) and there is definitively a bug. see image

I downloaded the latest versions of LibFredo, FredoTools (09 Jul 17) and that is the same

anyway, thanks a lot Fredo for all your super plugins !

have a good week !

You are right. There is definitely a bug and this is annoying.
I fixed it, and will re-release (as soon as the certification on EWH works again).

Please advise if this fixes your problems.
