In some cases smaller, in some cases even negative. My syntax is: for i=1 to segments put x[i],y[i] next i put x,y call “PolygonOperations”, parameters opcode=6, srcPolygon1=2, result=1, returned_parameters _area December 19, 2019 at 13:27 #18496 Péter BaksaKeymaster Hi, Does it help if your polygon is regularized? Counterclockwise order of points, no self-intersection, no points on other edges. Currently we don’t have an universal solution for area calculation in the ARCHICAD Library. You can write your own code using the Shoelace formula.
