How to find volume, mass or surface area of a component in Fusion 360?

A - answer To display any physical property, including the surface area, density, mass, volume, position of the center of gravity (mass), and moments of inertia, you can use the Properties palette.

Right-click on a component or part in the model tree and choose "Properties" from the context menu. In the displayed palette PROPERTIES you can find the requested value of a particular property, or you can copy these geometric properties to Windows Clipboard. The properties are displayed in the physical units which are currently set in "Active units" (tree > Named Views > Units).
