Hello, I got several geometry files that are used for 3D printing.
For statistics I’d like to calculate an accurate volume of the parts, but my models consist of several closed meshes which due to intersections lead to a surplus volume.
The first picture shows a small section of such a file. For this one I can use the MeshUnion grasshopper component, but this doesn’t work with more complicated geometries.
One possibility is using Netfabb or Magics for the mesh union and the volume calculation.
Could this be done in grasshopper with more complex geometries too ?
