Volume Not showing in Entity Info?

advice
#1

Hi, i’m New in town. Not sure if this where i’m supposed to post this help question. But, i’m trying to find the volume of a foundation model I made. I understand I am to make the foundation a group and then check the Entity Info to see the Volume of said group. Whenever I click the group and check the entity info, there is no Volume tab?

Can someone help or clarify?

I can send the file as well

That would imply that the group is not solid. There’s a hole or something. Upload the SKP file so we can see and tell you exactly what the issue is.

It is extremely common to create what you think is a solid but for it to fail in some unnoticeable way. Thomthom’s Solid Inspector 2 is a must have extension for me. It not only identifies groups and components that fail the acid test, it tells you how and oftentimes can fix defects automatically.

To get a volume report, your solid has to be watertight.

The group isn’t solid because there were stray edges and internal faces.
