Hi smart guys,

I am wondering if anyone knows how to get the volume of a 3D concave shape? The Matlab build-in function can only calculate the volume of a convex shape. For example,

[K, V] = convhulln(shape.vertices);

V is the volume. Here the shape is defined by a mesh with vertices and faces.

Thanks very much.
