Volume computations from point cloud data and 3d cad objects

Post by anamyslak » Wed May 21, 2014 6:55 pm

what software would you guys use to compute volume of irregularly shaped solid figure? One wall would be defined by point cloud data (can generate 3dmesh) and the remaining sides would be defined in 3D cad environment. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I use AutoCAD all the time for volumes with point clouds.
