Take a solid cube of dimensions (1u,1u,1u) with center at (0,0,0).

Cut it straight along x, y and z three times with a circle of diameter 1u parallel to the faces of the cube with the center of the circle at (x,0,0), (0,y,0), (0,0,z) respectively, removing the "shavings" on the outside.

What is the volume of the shape left behind and how do I calculate it?
