Total Line Lengths / List command

20170 Views, 6 Replies

I have several large group of lines on different layers that I want to get a total length of each group.  I can highlight them all and use the list command but then I have to go through the text box and write down each line length and then add them up hoping I don't miss one.  Not to mention it's going to take a while because of the number of lines that I have.

 

Is there a way to just have autocad add up a group of lines and give a total line length summation or get it from the particular layer?

 

Just curious.

Another option is to use the DataExtraction command.

It does take a minute or so to initially set it up, but the advantage is that the total is updated automatically if any of the lines are modified, or new lines are added.

Good to know - that would be handy because it is something we update and change.
