I was wondering if anyone can help me. I pretty much need to know the amount of surface area there is on a plane lying tangent to a human skull. I would GREATLY appreciate any help with this. Thanks in advance.
First cut the part of the skull that is sticking through the plane using the bisect tool: Then delete the rest of the faces so you're left with only the part you need to measure: Join up all the edges to get a plane, and then delete everything else so only the plane you made is left. Lastly go to user preferences and activate the 3d printing addon (found under mesh) and it will tell you the area of your plane. I would add more screenshots, but i can only post 2 since i dont have enough reputation.
