# Is it possible to display volume of a mesh object?

How can I display volume of any mesh object?

I can display length of an edge, the area of the face, but nothing for volume. Is it possible?

You can use the Print3D add-on for that. Activate it in user prefs (Ctrl-Alt-U) and it will appear in the Tool Shelf of the 3D View. Top line buttons let you calculate volume and total area.

• For me, the addon was called 3D Print Toolbox and you open it on the absolute left - there are vertical "tabs" Tools, Create, ...., 3D Print Toolbox (look below "File" menu) – jave.web Jul 10 '19 at 17:06
• How does this work in Blender 2.8? I don't see the menu. – Aaron Franke Jan 24 at 6:56

In 2.8 First activate the 3D-Print Toolbox addon: Edit->Preference->Add-ons and search 'print'. Now you can find the toolbox in the sidebar panel (press n if it does not show) Look in the 3D-print tab under statistics.
