NX - Getting the Area of a Closed Curve

In this week's Tip, we will look at how to get the area of closed curve on a drafting drawing.
1)  In the Drafting application, select Analysis > Advanced Mass Properties > Area using Curves:

2)  Select Boundary (Temporary):

3) Select the curves.

4) Click OK on the 2D Analysis dialog.

5) Set the desired tolerance. Click OK.

6) Select the 'Perimeter/Area' button to display the information.

Note: If the curves are not selectable in Step 3, expand the view first before beginning the Area using Curves command.
          a) Hover the cursor over the view boundary, select MouseButton3 > Expand

b)  To turn the Expanded View off, hover the cursor over the view boundary, select MouseButton3 > Expand.

I hope you find this tip useful, thank you.
