Is there an Onshape app or function that calculates the total area of a single part?
The area of a 3D part determines powder coating costs. These parts are all steel plate rectangles with rectangular cutouts and round holes of various sizes. A generalized app would avoid creating different area formuas for each part, and could accommodate new parts of greater complexity.
Many other Onshape users must require area calculations. What soultions are available in the Onshape Universe
