What CAD program do you have? I use Solidworks and for similar things, I will enter dimensions as functions of whatever it is that I want to be able to adjust on the fly. So in this case, I would dimension the height and diameter as functions of a desired volume (needing a second relation of course to fully define the equation set) then enter the desired volume into the model data. The height and diameter are then populated automatically. Similar can be done with non-cylindrical shapes. It just takes a good deal more work on the front end.
