SolidWorks Tutorial – Fill an Assembly Cavity to Determine its Volume

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE, last updated on March 26, 2014

In the past articles, we demonstrated the use of the new Intersect Tool for quickly filling an existing cavity with a solid body in order to calculate its volume. That works fine at the part level, but how can you achieve the same thing in an assembly?

How can you “fill” the cavity or cavities created between all components of the assembly with material in order to calculate the volume of the “void”?

Watch this video and learn how to combine Boolean operations at the assembly level with multibody workflows at the part level:
