Default Viewing the volume of a group/cell zone (Gambit - Fluent)

RobV is on a distinguished road

I created a grid in Gambit consisting of many different volumes. The grid is subsequently divided into several groups which are translated to cell zones when loading the mesh in Fluent. For some calculations, the total volume (in cubic meters) of all the volumes in the group is required. Is there a way to display the total volume of all the volumes in a group or cell zone in Gambit or Fluent?

kind regards,

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
you cannot directly get the total volume
Summarize groups doesn't do the job
Summarize Volumes do the job if you select all your volumes (use filter / group)
But then you have to do the math, because gambit will give you all the volume.
I think a script will the solution
