Is there a capability to determine the cross sectional area at various orientations around an assembly?

For drag calculations, I'm trying to determine the cross sectional area of an assembly that would be exposed to the free stream velocity.  As the object can rotate, the cross sectional area would change.  I don't need the numbers for every orientation (would be nice), but if I was able to select some specific orientations and determine values, that would be the goal.  Is SolidWorks capable of giving various cross sectional areas in this manner?
