The following 3 methods can be used to measure an area.
- Measuring an area of a polygon having a vertex at a specified point array.
- Measuring an area of a selected shape (a circle, ellipse, or a polyline of a polygon).
- Specifying an inner point for an area to be measured.
To display a command parameter to be executed, click / of command parameters, or press Tab key or ← / → key on the keyboard.
- Click [Measure Area] on [Tools] menu.
- Specify a target whose area is to be measured.
Specifying a target displays the measured area in [Measurement Results] dialog box.
When specifying a point array
Switch the parameter on Command Window to [Point Array] box, click 3 or more point arrays in order on the drawing, and press Enter on the keyboard, or click on the toolbar on Command Window.
The area of a polygon having a vertex at a specified point array will be measured.
When specifying a shape
Switch the parameter on Command Window to [Shape] box, and click a shape (a circle, ellipse, or a polyline of a polygon) whose area is to be measured.
The area of the clicked shape will be measured.
When specifying an inner point
Switch the parameter on Command Window to [Inner Point] box, and click an inner point in the area whose area is to be measured.
Input a value from 100 to 50000 in [Divided number of curve] box. When a curve in included in the area, the number is used to explode the curve to lines.
The area of the minimum closed range enclosing the clicked position will be measured.
- Click [Close].
[Measurement Results] will be closed.
Click it to copy the measurement results to the Windows Clipboard.
Click to specify the number of decimal places displayed.
|▪||The unit for measurement results can be modified in [Drawing Settings] dialog box.|
|▪||You can specify a point array by inputting X and Y coordinates in [Point Array] box on Command Window.|
|▪||When specifying a polyline of a polygon, an open polyline or self-intersected polyline cannot be specified.|
|▪||In the [Drawing Settings] dialog box, increasing the [Area search tolerance] makes it easier to find the area whose area you want to measure.|
