# In this article, we will teach you the simplest method of calculating area, environment and volume in SolidWorks software.

These simple commands have many applications in increasing modeling accuracy.

Go to: Tools> Mass properties

There are many possibilities in this dialog box. In our example the surface area is 40091mm2. Which you can see in the orange box.

The size of the model is 169,301 mm3

You can also see the mass of the model. You can also see the crime center:

X = 0.00

Y = 204.73

Z = 0.00

The above information tells you that the mass center is 204.73 mm above the origin of this section.

Go to Tools > Mass properties or click on the Mass properties icon

In the Mass properties box, you can find many material properties.

The surface area of the squeezer is 40091mm2 as you can see in the orange rectangle. Measuring Area

As you can see in the Mass Properties box in SolidWorks, the volume of our model is 169301 mm3.

You can also see the Mass of your model. It’s important to set up a material first to get the right properties.

Another great value is the “Center of mass

This information will tell you where the center of your product is.

Center of mass: ( millimeters )

X = 0.00

Y = 204.73

Z = 0.00

The information above tells you that the center of your product is 204,73 mm above the origin of this part.
