Greetings from a Sunny, if Chilly, South Africa.

I am modelling a rather complex geometry, and wish to extract the
surface Area, and the Volume. According to mailing list archives, I
have managed on the Area, but cannot logically extend that to Volume,
since I have no idea what I am really doing with the Plugins.

I include a minimal, simple cube, 2m by 3m by 1/2m. This correctly
yields 17m^2 for the surface area, but does not compute 3m^3 for the

I would appreciate any pointers,
