Total surface area

[ Edited ]

Is there an easy way to total the surface area of a part?

 

Thanks, But I was looking for external surface area. You can Inquire
Element, but it does not let you retain the previous selection and add multiple areas together.  I have been using a spreadsheet to place all of the values I get and sum them,  but this is cumbersome.

The upper right gives surface area. You get this by going to the Inspect tab, and the Physical Properties group, clicking on the Properties icon.

I think I accidently found a workaround for your problem. Use a surface area sensor. You can use it to track your area during the design.

Thank you for this, I wish the same type of summation was available in the area command. Seems like it is doable if it can be done with the sensor. Since I was only looking for external surface, my workaround was a Synchronous extrude of one side with the internal regions ignored, through all, and then do an Inspect>Properties, and not save the changes.
