Use the Volume of bolt holes component to calculate the volume of the bolt holes that affect a part and to write them into a UDA file. You can see the values in the UDA file when you inquire the part. You can use that UDA in reports to calculate the real volume of the part, and also the weight. The name of the UDA is BOLT_HOLE_VOLUME.
