Area of carve for resin

I searched and didn’t find anything, I’d like to request an Easel feature, Is there any chance you guys could add something that would give us a total area or volume of a carve? It would be really helpful when figuring resin volumes for inlays. As a person who can’t program (or do much math!) it seems like it would be a simple thing to add.

In a pinch you can pour sand into the cavity and measure that volume.

That sand idea is clever!

That’s an interesting feature idea. I moved the post over to the Easel feature request category.

Thanks Zach. I have considered rice ad sand but I have enough messes around here! Also a 5 year old that really wants to help, I’d be out of sand in about 2 minutes, LOL

Do you need to know so you can measure if you have enough resin before you put it in?

Rice will not work. It is too large. Sand works well

Table salt?

Yes. That will work also

@Zach_Kaplan, yes and no, I also want to use the area to figure how much to mix. If i just knew how many square inches the surface of the carved out area was I could dial in how much resin to make up. Otherwise, I’m shooting blind and generally come up a touch short.
