    is there an automated way to determine the maxiumum cross-sectional area of a part

    Jeff Ference

      I am trying to find an easy way to have solidworks tell me the max cross-sectional area of a part.

      I work for a forging company and we use this information to determine the correct size billet to forge the part from.

      The only way I currently know of to do this is to manually step thru a cross-sectional view and measure at each slice.

      I am looking for an automated way to do this.

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks,

      Jeff
