How can we calculate the volume of a drawn model using SolidWorks ?

Richard and Kaiwei: This process is actually pretty easy in SOLIDWORKS (as of version 2014). See the list below:

  1. Step 1:

    I created a basic coffee mug as an example here

  2. Step 2:

    Create a reference plane that cuts through the part. In this case, I estimated where the coffee cup would be "filled up" to.

  3. Step 3:

    After the plane is created, fire up the "Intersect" feature, and select the reference plane and the solid body.

  4. Step 4:

    Exclude the regions not needed, in most cases - those regions will be 1 and 3. The three listed regions here are all the possible bodies that can be created using the solid body and the reference plane I created.

  5. Step 5:

    Final step is to reference the above steps (from MI Ilmy) to calculate the volume of what's left (the internal volume of the coffee cup)
