I need evaluate a volum of a part, there anything that I can do to put only the volum and put the respective features to automaticaly regenerate? In resume I wanna put only the volum (I have the value), but the othes variables isnt important to me now.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure I completely understand what you're asking, but it sounds like you want to:

1. Insert > Datum > Analysis

2. Model Analysis, Mass Properties, Compute

3. By default it should create a parameter called volume

4. Hit the check mark.

Now you'll have a feature in your model and model tree that calculates your mass properties and generates a parameter called volume. The feature can be reordered and redefined as you require. It will recalculate every time you regenerate the model.
