Extract volume and vertex coordinates from 3Dsolids

This and more information can easily be extracted from AutoCAD DWG files. The process can be automated and exported into most custom formats based on user requirements. I just did a project like this using the Brep API for .NET that was added to AutoCAD 2009. I used AutoCAD 2010, Visual Studio 2008 and C# for this referencing C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2010\acdbmgdbrep.dll.

The 3dsolids are composed of Complexes, Shells, Faces, Loops and Edges.
