Calculating roofing areas


Recommended Posts

I found a way to do it. If you view a roof face from a 3D angle and then trace over it using the 3D polygon tool, this gives you the surface area. When doing this the "smart edge" constraint must be turned off. Or you will not be able to snap to the edges of the roof.

Incidentaly it seems that the ability to calculate roof areas must be a function needed by every architect since the beggining of time, why does VW not have this built in?
