Area Properties


New member

I'm new to v5. Having created a simple shape, I'd like to analyse it for area, centroid position etc. I know this can be done in part design, but how do you do thiswithin Drafting ? (It was so easy in V4).

OK, I've been informed by a German colleague that you cannot analyse area properties in 'Drafting' mode, only Part Design.

I think this is really poor . . . . but I guess its just a case of having to get used to doing things in a different way. My problem at the moment is that I'm working with V5 whilst thinking in V4.
