Surface area to csv, what am I doing wrong?

I can’t get the surface area to show up in the csv export. What am I missing?

Hello - it looks like this is broken for meshes. Thanks for the heads-up, I’ll get it on the pile.


Well that’s a pain! Any quick fixes out there? Can’t get Peter’s Tools to work on mesh either.

I’ll see if I can make you something. Can you tell me all the stuff you want to export from a mesh? (1.6 KB)

@carvecream - here is a start - see if that does anything good.

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"


Wow thanks Pascal! Just need the basics. Name, layer, surface area (in the file units is fine, I’ll run the math in excel. But if it could do sq ft all the better!)

using this for surface area data collection for 100’s of meshes

trying to use attribute text gives this:

Attribute Keys Attribute Texts
Area %<Area(“ea33a664-46a6-40ce-99a3-d928ed664d0c”)>%

@carvecream - did you have a try at my script, above? The mesh support has been added in V7, btw, thanks for the report.


YES! Just saw this today, I didn’t see you add to your message above…
Works great, thank you again!
