good morning,

 

i need to measure the volume of a tank that i'll make from a topographic contour from autocad.

first i insert that contour to solidworks via 2d sketch and i extrude it about 20m with 18deg draft.then through evaluate and mass properties, i get all the measurements except volume that shows 0.0 cubic meters.

i do the same with a new part like a cone, i use also the exrude cut command to make a hole inside and i still have the same result. any help would be usefull.

 

thanks
