I would like to calculate the volume of my mesh (blocking were used to create the mesh).
I know ICEM is unitless, but I ensured that mesures were in meters.

So as an example, for a cube, I know the volume is given by "length x length x lentgh". But I would like to calculate the volume throught the mesh or the blocks.

Do you know if it's possible and how I could achieve that ?

I think I found how to do this.

- Create a part with the blocks you want to calculate the volume of.
- Convert the blocking to unstructured mesh.
- Right click on the created part ("Parts" in the display tree) -> Info.

the volume of mesh = volume of geometry, no ?! why would you need a volume of mesh ? without being intrusive

Yes volume of mesh = volume of geometry.
I took a very simple example of a cube, but my geometry is far more complexe than a cube

Broly : If you take ICEM along with complicated volume to Euclidean space and apply Euler volume law (along with Newton's calculus and Einstein's Solid differential geomtry) you can easily find out the volume of that mesh

These were just funny lines. cannot you select the particular (or all) block(s) and get all the info?
