Macro to add "gross" area to custom properties

Question asked by Chris Pettit on Mar 15, 2017

Can someone please help me with a macro that would add the following custom property to a solidworks part file?

Property Name = "Gross Area"

Value = "D1@sketch1" multiplied by "D2@sketch1"

 

Basically I want to know the overall amount of material used to make a bracket or plate. See image.footprint.JPG

 

I have downloaded the macro "FaceProperties" posted by Feroz Mahomed on Sept 8, 2015 then tried to add this myself but I cannot figure out how to pull these two dimensions into the macro. Here is the thread for that macro: https://forum.solidworks.com/message/522449

 

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Chris Pettit.
