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

Mark -

Area didn't work because that function basically wants me to trace an
outline of an area. But you did get me pointed in the right direction. What
I did was create regions and then joined them (union). The final result was
a single solid entity with an area. I use that feature when I'm doing
section properties (after region, one can use the MassProp command to get
centroid and moment of inertia) but I never thought about using it for this
purpose.

Thanks,

: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.
