    How to determine surface area of odd shaped parts

    I'm new to the plating world. I am in the process of determining the surface area of a bunch of odd ball parts on a Porsche 911 engine. Someone mentioned the water displacement theory. I've tried googling and searching you-tube but not having any luck with fining an explanation that's not over my head. Can anyone dumb this down for me? Also is this an accurate way to measure surface area of odd parts?

    That is a way to get close, however if you need consistency you really need to know your calculated surface areas.

    I turn up the current until the part/s starts to fizz, then back off until very little/no fizz, no calculating and parts come out nice

    You can cover the part on all sides with aluminum foil, then open the aluminum foil and measure that
