If i have an assembly made up for a number of parts, Including Tubes, angles, Flats all welded together.
I need to work out the surface area for working out paint/priming costs/requirements.
i need this infomation on drawing/ or custom properties.
The problem is, If i use the solid works "surface area" it counts the insides of tubes. which do not get painted.
I need some way of it only selecting the correct faces - or some generic "outword" facing command.
I need this to be automated as we have a large number of assemeblies, we would like to use this on.
Anyone got any ideas?
