In V.6 I created 3d letters using “text object”. If I select the letters and use “area” I get 10699.03936 square inches. If I explode the letters and choose area again I get 79454.72074 square inches. I can do this with the same selection so I’m not missing anything on the second calculation. Any ideas?
Please post a sample file that exhibits this.
Here’s the actual file

I think you’re selecting the curves too. If you run SelSrf and Area first. Then Join and and run SelPolysrf and Area you get the same number.
thanks for the reply, I didn’t know closed curves created area
Is it normal tha closed curves are accounted in area calculation?
