Is it possible to calculate the perimeter of the inner and outter edge at the same time.

you might want to read the FAQ first

http://discussion.autodesk.com/thread.jspa?threadID=614626

then, if you want your question answered, list what version of Inventor you are using and describe in detail what you are trying to accomplish. A screenshot of the part/assembly/drawing in question also helps.

I was mainly curious if anyone has an add-in to do it for you. It can be a pain if you have alot of holes.

As has been stated above.

Please list your version of Inventor. In the thread linked above I answered how to do this in 2008 using the Region Properties dialog.

I tried the add to accumulate command in the loop command but it will not let me select a hole. The outside works fine but the hole is like it isn't even there.

Hi! I am not sure if you are aware of Region Properties tool in Sketch. If
the edges of interest are coplanar, you can create a sketch and project all
the edges. Next, use Tools-> Region Properties. Select the loop you are
interested. It will calculate the perimeters for you.
