Hi all I have a question I hope someone can help me with, I am a new user to autocad lt


I have a .dwg file that has 488 closed objects  I need to know the total sum of the area for all closed objects



I don't really want to have to use the line function for every single object to get each individual area then add them all together on a calculator.



I was hoping there would be a quicker method for this i need to know the total area of all 488 objects added together.



any help would be appreciated



Thanks in advance :smileyhappy:

AREA command has an ADD function, use it's OBJECT option to select each closed area for a total.

It will highlight each one you pick as you go along.
