Hello,

I have a model with an organic surface. Nothing crazy just a few different curves on it. There is a hole in the middle of this surface that I want to know the surface area of. Currently I will convert the edges of this hole into a sketch, extrude it, and then use the evaluate tab to find the area of the surface. Is there a way to find the surface area of a 3D sketch without extruding it to create a surface?

Thank you,

Jake

You could try the following

1. Evaluate the surface area with the hole

2. Right click on the hole edge and select delete and the option to Delete holes

3. Evaluate the surface area that has been patched.

4. Subtract the first result from the second for the area of the hole.

5. You can then undo or not save the part to have the original available.
