In the RS3 documentation, the External Volume may also be referred to as External Boundary or External Geometry.

Edit External Volume

You cannot directly edit the External Volume once it has been created, except for the use of the Divide All Geometry or Un-Divide All Geometry tools. To delete or edit External Geometry you must either Undo your changes or use Clear External and then edit the geometry.
