Selecting objects by volume

Does anybody know how can I select objects by volume? Is this possible at all?

Not by default AFAIK, but this could definitely be scripted.

OK! Thanks! I’am not very good scripting guy but I think I have to try.

Hi Vahur,
Try this one.
It will select the closest closed object according to your required volume value. (1.9 KB)

This is an interesting script. Is there anyway it could be modified to run the command, select a object and it will select all other objects on the screen with the same volume?

Hi Ryan,

Download the script attached below. It will require: the selection of an object (which has target volume), then the selection of all the other object which will be taken into account, and finally a tolerance value.
For example, if your selected target object has a volume of 100 m3, and you entered a tolerance of 10, then all objects with volume of 90 to 110 will be selected).

To call the python script from an alias, [check this explanation] (Script OneLayerOff) (“Procedure 2”). (2.6 KB)


That’s great, I appreciate you modifying / making a new script.
Thank you
