I made a lake using lines set at different elevations to show depth, is there a way to calculate the volume of the lake in AutoCAD 2013 from just the line elevations and area without having to make the lines a solid surface

For rough estimate, loft bottom and top, MASSPROP command

or use C3D

The volume is roughly 17,250 cubic units.  This was calculated inside plain AutoCAD directly from the drawing geometry using the MapWorks Surfaces add-on.
