Help! Finding the external 'wetted' surface area of a boundary surface


New member

Need to measure the external surface area of a boundary surface for CFD analysis. Any way of doing this in Solidworks 2010? Aware of methods for the entire model, but not for individual bits. Its a fuselage, screenshot attached, need to find the surface area of the entire fuselage.

Any ideas/help appreciated

Many thanks,
