Hi,

How can I run the following c# code and get the result. I want to pass the the following .stl file and find the volume of it on page load event.

stl file:

http://orion.math.iastate.edu/burkardt/data/stl/bottle.stl


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.IO;

namespace WebApplication1
{
    public class Triangle
    {
        public double x; public double y; public double z;
    }

    public class STLUtils
    {
        public enum LengthType { inch, cm } ;

        List<byte[]> _normals = new List<byte[]>();
        List<byte[]> _points = new List<byte[]>();
        List<Triangle> _triangles = new List<Triangle>();
        List<byte> _bytecount = new List<byte>();
        byte[] _fileBytes;
        LengthType _lengthType;
        string _filename;

        public bool IsValidated(string[] args)
        {
            if (args.Length != 2) return false;
            if (!Enum.TryParse<LengthType>(args[1], true, out _lengthType))
            {
                return false;
            }

            _filename = args[0];

            return File.Exists(_filename);
        }

        public double CalculateVolume()
        {
            //read binary file
            _fileBytes = File.ReadAllBytes(_filename);

            //reverse array if little indian
            if (BitConverter.IsLittleEndian)
                Array.Reverse(_fileBytes);

            //read length
            int length = ReadLength();

            double totalVol = 0;

            //skip 80(header) + 4(length)
            var bytes = _fileBytes.Skip(84);

            //loop through all triangles data
            for (int i = 0; i < length; i++)
            {
                _normals.Add(bytes.Take(12).ToArray());

                var p1 = bytes.Skip(12).Take(12).ToArray();
                var p2 = bytes.Skip(24).Take(12).ToArray();
                var p3 = bytes.Skip(36).Take(12).ToArray();
                var b = bytes.Skip(48).Take(2);

                var l = _points.Count;
                _points.Add(p1);
                _points.Add(p2);
                _points.Add(p3);
                _triangles.Add(new Triangle { x = l, y = l + 1, z = l + 2 });

                _bytecount.Add(b.First());
                totalVol += signedVolumeOfTriangle(p1, p2, p3);
                bytes = bytes.Skip(50);
            }

            //convert to required length type (cm/inch)
            return (_lengthType == LengthType.cm) ?
                totalVol / 1000 :
                cm3_To_inch3Transform(totalVol / 1000);
        }

        private double cm3_To_inch3Transform(double totalVol)
        {
            return totalVol * 0.0610237441;
        }

        private int ReadLength()
        {
            //skip 80 chars (header), read next 4 bytes to get length
            int length = BitConverter.ToInt32(_fileBytes.Skip(80).Take(4).ToArray(), 0);
            return length;
        }

        public double signedVolumeOfTriangle(byte[] p1, byte[] p2, byte[] p3)
        {
            double v321 = p3[0] * p2[1] * p1[2];
            double v231 = p2[0] * p3[1] * p1[2];
            double v312 = p3[0] * p1[1] * p2[2];
            double v132 = p1[0] * p3[1] * p2[2];
            double v213 = p2[0] * p1[1] * p3[2];
            double v123 = p1[0] * p2[1] * p3[2];
            return (1.0 / 6.0) * (-v321 + v231 + v312 - v132 - v213 + v123);
        }
    }
}

like this:
//download stl file and save it in your file system
WebClient.DownloadFile("http://orion.math.iastate.edu/burkardt/data/stl/bottle.stl",@"c:\temp\bottle.stl");	

//create STLUtils instance and validate the file
STLUtils stlUtils = new STLUtils();
if(stlUtils.IsValidated(@"c:\temp\bottle.stl", "inch")){
double volume = stlUtils.CalculateVolume();
}

Open in new window


2nd parameter of IsValidated accept either "inch" or "cm".

It works now but returns 0,means there is not decimal places displayed.

I posted another question. Please have look.
