Determination of the volume

Hi
I would like to create different solid bodies with the same volume
Is there any solution for it in Onshape?
Thank you

    If the shape is simple enough, perhaps the dimensions could be constrained using variables, otherwise perhaps a scaling custom feature script that can pull the variables needed from the part properties. What kind of shape in the solid in?

    If this is a cylinder you can probably set the desired volume as: #V=amount given, Radius as #R, and #H as the height, then either the height "H" = pi*(#R^2)/(#V), and type in a value for "#R", or use #R in terms of height as #R = sqrt(#V/(pi*#H))
