I've updated my original freeware calculator into something pretty
nice, and still free.

My "canned" description:
ME Weights 2.1 is a material weight calculator which combines power
with ease of use. Designed to calculate the volume and weight of any
combination of fifteen basic shapes and a large variety of materials
commonly used in manufacturing and construction.

Shapes include: hexagonal, octagonal, rectangular, square, and round solid bar round, square, and rectangular tubing sphere, hollow sphere, pyramid, cone, cone frustum (truncated cone), and spherical cap

Square and rectangular solid stock may also have external corner radii defined. Square and rectangular tubing may have internal and/or external radii defined. This allows for the calculation of a large number of "custom" shapes.

The user identifies the material, then selects and dimensions the shape. There is a substantial built-in material density database, or a user-defined value may be input. Dimensional data can be input as any combination of inches, feet, millimeters, and meters. Output can be in U.S. or metric units.

Input may be numerical or in the form of an expression - 1.500 or 1 1/2 or 1+1/2 or 1+(1/2) or (1+1/2), among others.

The program is a single 200k file which is installed simply by copying it to a directory of your choice. It does not modify your registry.

Hope somebody finds it useful.
