How do I measure the volume encapsulated by a plane and an actual mesh.


Recommended Posts



I have a STL of a dome shape and want to measure the volume of it relative to a plane fitted to the top surface. I can't do this by just fitting geometry elements to the surface, such as fitting a sphere and using that to calculate it, I have to measure it to the actual mesh itself. 

Below are some diagrams:

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if I can clarify anything.
