    I assume that you want to create a volumetric weight calculator like this one: http://www.online-calculators.co.uk/volumetric/weight.php, is that correct?

    If this is correct you can use the form calculation widget to perform this calculation. I was unable to find a template for this kind of form, so I went ahead and created this demo for you: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43327304489963 feel free to clone it to your account if you want to.

    Let us know if this is what you are looking for.
    Thank you.

    See below just a quick sample that we use for Australia and NZ domestic

    Hi Mauricio,

    Basically to get the volume of a box you need to multiple 3 sides of a box - length * width * height

    Now since you acquire the length in cm and want to show it in m3 you would need to divide it by 100 (each time).

    Basically to get cubic centimeters from length in centimeters you do this:

    total cm3 = length cm * width cm * height cm

    and to calculate it to m3

    total m3 = (length cm / 100) * (width cm / 100) * (height cm / 100)

    You can see it all setup and working here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43332184726959

    You can close it to your account following these steps: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Thank you for sharing your form, Andrew. 

    We can perhaps make a template out of the form you have shared, or you can create a form here in JotForm and add it in the form templates for public use.  In any case, we are grateful.

    Warm regards :)
