Querying for Areas in Blocks and Xrefs

The AREA command is useful for finding the area of many AutoCAD objects. AutoCAD can find the area of circles, ellipses, splines, regions, closed polylines, or polygon objects. It also quickly finds the length of an open polyline. Using the AREA command’s Object option, AutoCAD calculates and lists the object’s area and perimeter length.

Caution

The AREA command provides both the total length and the total area of an open polyline object. Although the length is accurate, the calculated area is not.
