ahhh, pretty sinch!

Nice, Thank you so much

Thanks!

Thank you very much for this tutorial.

Thanks a lot needed this for my next project for bringing a new product on the market

thank U very much .really very helpful…..

So +GoEngineer YouTube, when I uncheck "merge result" I do not get 2 solid bodies. What else do I need to do?

Running Solidworks 2014 Premium

Awesome training

I am currently having an issue trying to find the amount of gallons/volume of a square with a specific wall but it states that you must have a solid form in order to use combine. Any way to work around?

Thank you very much. Nicely explained.

its not accurate internal volume either. to do it my way you have to use a Sub-d modeling plugin for solidworks. mass properties before shell, minus mass properties after shell. 231 cubic inches = a gallon.. simple.

way to long of a way to do it

Thanks, I will look into it!

I'm guessing you have multiple openings on your part, that's the issue I ran into. The inner volume must be completely contained, so creating more extrusions to cover them should fix the problem.

Hello Joe , when I click on the OK mark, the box "Bodies to keep" doesn't show up.

Any idea's what I should do?

i guess the final volume is the volume of the water plus the volume of the model.

I design Plastic Bottles on a daily basis, and I would not reccomend this proceedure. it's good to get a baseline, but it is not accurate. In Blow Molding, you have uneven wall distibution and this assumes even wall distibution and you could be calculating the wrong volume. I do it based on gram weight and cubic inch of the entire part.

When I accepted it as in yout vid around 1:50. My Solidworks did not recognise anything – the box not pop up. 🙁

Thanks Joe,

I had to compare two sizes of a 1/8 scale model boiler to figure out just how much larger volumetrically one was, but had no idea how to do it. Very helpful indeed.

Thanks! finally figured it out with this video

Awesome, fast tutorial. For my Solidworks class we need to design a propane tank. To do this, I needed to calculate the volume of my model and had no idea how to do so until I saw this. Thanks, so much!
