Find minimum cross sectional area along axis with boundary extents

Question asked by Thomas Rohrbach on Sep 11, 2018

Hello!

 

I am looking to find the minimum cross-sectional area within a connecting rod part file. I've been unable to find a tool which accomplishes this, and to add complexity I would like to find the min area only within a certain length along a body axis of the part. See the attached image. I am looking for the min area contained within the webbed section, thereby excluding either of the ends which have smaller cross sections, but are not areas of interest. Wondering if there is a good approach to this problem? Thanks!
