    Hello,

    Is there anything in archicad that can solve the area of a fill or prism for me?
    Or is there any way that I can solve it? It can have between 3 and 10 sides so it’s not just a simple calculation.

    Thanks

    In Archicad yes, a fill can display its area, and IES can list the surface of an object.
    In GDL no, you have to calculate it. If the polygon contains no holes, and only straight edges, the Shoelace formula is simple to code.
