Add a boundary and the statistics tab will give you the 2d and 3d area. for the volume create a plane surface at the desired elevation and compute the volume between.

Thank you

This may solve for volumes but what about 3d surface area.

Are you telling me I have to add a boundary to a surface and go the surface area statistics every time i want a 3d surface area for a different polygon?
