'Impossible' Solid's Volume (Posted on 2006-11-04) Difficulty: 4 of 5
For background please use the two links which are the bold and blue words.

A solid whose plan view and front and side elevations resembled a multiplication symbol (x) bounded by a circle may be viewed here.

It is the third on that page.

The object can be created by imposing 3 cylinders on a cube in each of the x, y and z dimensions.

If the edges of the cube are of unit length, What is the volume of this object?

How mundane (as being simple) a solution can we get?
