Hello,

I have created a shape formed by 4 overlapping cones. I wish to measure the surface area of this shape but I don't want to include the area underneath where the geometry overlaps (see attached image). Does anyone know if there is a way round this?

Any help would be extremely appreciated

Karen

Just in case anyone else has the same problem - I managed to solve this by using the combine feature command. This allowed me to make a single surface from the overlapping cones and make the correct surface area measurement. This method is less time consuming than trimming each cone and is easier with some of my other models with more complex designs.
