Hello All,
I have 3D surface which I created using the Triscatteredinterp and surf commands.Is there a way that I can calculte the volume of the surface. The surface you can imagine is like the contact lens with varying hieght according to the Z - coordinates.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rachit :
Doesn't make sense. Do you really mean the "surface area" of the surface, or the volume *between* your surface and some other surface, such as a plane containing the axes. Please clarify.

Sorry for the confusion but yes I am looking for the surface area.

Thanks,
