Elevation Efficiency

Recommended Posts

I can do the Convert Copy to Line thing with hidden lines to create an elevation. But with the compound curve surfaces I use, the triangulated surface lines are driving me crazy. I have what must be thousands of them I have to select and delete to get down to the bare necessities, which is the outline of the building. Any tricks for getting just the ooutline as an elevation, rather than all the many, many line segments?

And while we're here, it doesn't seem that VW calcs the surface area of my object, which is a nurbs surface that became a solid subtraction. This wiuld be HUGELY useful, because from that number I can accurately calculate a whole buncha different construction costs. Without it, I gotta make some crazy guesses. Any tricks for finding the area of the surface of this kind of object?
