Get Flat Pattern Cut Length and Area


I'm once again trying to tackle this.... I need to get the total cut length of all edges (outer loops and any inner holes/cuts) for a given flat pattern, and I also need the area of the piece, for material costing purposes.


I have seen two older VB.NET examples of how to get flat pattern area, but could not get them to work. Does anyone have a more recent solution?

Why not just drop it in Draft and use the area properties there for area and perimeter?
