I have a 3D-Point cloud model of a rock formation that I want to upload onto ArcGIS Online.

Is there a way to create a tool for the web user to determine distance across the surface of the model, and also to determine volume of a layer that the user can draw?

I have separated the different geological layers into multipatches and would like the ability to determine the volumes of a section of the layer based on a user drawing input.
