Square Footage?

I use CorelDraw exclusivity  for my Sign Company and was woundering if the is a macro or even a setting that I have missed within CorelDraw for showing square footage or square dimensioning for a selection you have.

Thank you,

Craig

  • I think there is a MACRO AVAILABLE at macromonster.com

    GetArea12c is the one I have.

    Hi DD,
     
    here's the curve length one I have (check your mm link in your post)
     
    The Getarea 12c macro is attached. I think it's OK to post here..  not sure what happened to Nick at Isocalc.
     
    Anyway, he had this as a freebie at his site as we know.

    Guess I'm adding another button to my toolbar. I'm surprised I never saw
    this at Isocalc (R.I.P.). I love the fact that it works based on the
    drawing's scale.

    Jeff. Would the commercial macro you  have on your site called "eCut for Corel Draw" work in this case?

  • In reply to Brute-Fish:

    Yes... You and your scales. hee hee... ;-)
     
    As for Nick, I don't know if he was abducted by aliens or what. Poof... gone.

    Thank you all,

    Maybe I am missing something or I did not explain myself.  I appologize.

    It I have text or an object on my document that is selected, I need it to take the lengnth by height of the object and multiply it by itself and figure the square footage that i need.  What I do know is; select text (or an object) take the x and y, multiply it and IF it is in inches I take that sum and multiply it by 144 to get the square footage. I can do manually like I do but was wondering if there was a macro to do this.

    Thank you,

    Craig

  • In reply to Craig:

    That's what this macro does... but you just select  ft^2 in the dialogue box... and it's not a sum, it's a result, and it's divide sq in  by 144 (not multiply) to get sq ft.  (12" x 12" is 144 sq in... divided by 144 = 1 sq ft ( = 12" x 12" = 12 in square... = 1 sq ft - not 12 sq in)

    See Jeff's previous other post on the area question for the link to the macro named   GetArea12c.gms

    It does the job lickety-split.

    Clairification please. Are you trying to find the actual area of the objects selected or are trying to find the area of the amount of material you will need to use to create the object including "waste" on a vinyl cutter. (the area of a rectangle circumscribed around the objects.) ?

    dd,

    I can't find the macro GetArea12c.gms anywhere. I have looked many places including Monstermacros.

    If it is free, could you attach it?

     

    Thank you,

    Craig

    I searched this site and found a link.  Thank you.

    Glad you found it but in a harder way, but that macro was attached in the very third post in this same thread.

  • In reply to Aleem Ashraf:

    I have written one that not only provides sq ft of object selected,  - calculates price based on whatever you input.

    Very handy..when you need a quick price on something.... :) it also does other some things....weed boxes and such

    select object - click total - click price.

    hi Craig,

    Here are some things to see in the meantime:

    Note: They are both commercial.

    for weedboxes

    and

    tons of advanced stuff, including automatic nesting
