RE: There's got to be a better way than the way I'm doing it

Bill,

Try.....turn all layers off except your walls. Initiate the "area" command
and pick the area contained by your walls. Divide the result by your drawn
wall width.

I've never done this for the purpose of figuring total wall length but seems
like it might start you down the right path.

Regards,

Mark

Does anyone have a slick way to total the length of interior and exterior
walls in a floor plan drawn in AutoCAD?

Thanks.
