i know from basic maths the volume of my cylinder and thus the volume it can pump per cycle.

but how can i get proe 2001 to work it out for me. or better yet what if i had some odd shape that was shelled. how could i work ou the volume of that?

Do you have BMX?

1. Create a datum analysis feature of type Model Analysis that calculates the one-sided volume of the part before the shell.

2. Repeat step 1, but for the one-sided volume AFTER the shell.

3. Create a datum analysis feature of the type Relation that subtracts the difference.
