API for calculation of volume inside an stl - freeform - model

Hey guys,

I am new to C# and am actually writing my bachelor-thesis. Therefore I need to implement a module that is able to calculate volumes inside a STL - 3D - model. I already got a mathematical essay that describes how to calculate the volume and could implement on my own. However I need to cut my model at several heights in order to calculate the volumes of the resulting bodys. I suppose even if I do so this would crash my timeline for the thesis, as this is only one small part I am examining. I suppose this problem has already been solved thousands of times and is already part of some well-known 3D-API. Unfortunately I am not able to find anything like that by google search.

Perhaps someone has an idea, a tip, or even better - ready-to-use and sharp code? :)

Thank you very much in advance!
