How to calculate the surface area of a cross-section


Calculate the surface area of a cross-section.


1. Start with the geometry you want to calculate.

2. Add a Section Body block.

    • Add your geometry to the Body input.
    • Add a Plane from Normal for the Plane input.

3. Add a Surface Area from Body block.

    • Insert the Section Body block in the Body input.
    • Look at the calculated area in the top right of the block. This value is the surface area.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully calculated the surface area of a cross-section in three simple steps
