AreaVolume screen grab



Works with any version of LightWave Modeler.

AreaVolume calculates the surface area and volume of the selected polygons in the foreground layer. The volume makes sense when the object is a closed polyhedron with aligned, single-sided, flat polygons. The surface area calculation assumes only that the polygons are flat.

This is a straightforward implementation of Ronald N. Goldman's Area of Planar Polygons and Volume of Polyhedra in Graphics Gems II.
