Volume Point 2

Defines the second point for the definition of the volume. This point determines the length of the volume in one direction.

Select Volumes for Subtraction

Allows you to select volumes (graphically or from the Workspace Explorer) and then remove the selected volume from the volume definition.

Volume List
