How to Measure Area in DWG TrueView

May 23, 2024

DWG TrueView is a powerful and versatile CAD software that is widely used by architects, engineers, and designers for creating and editing digital designs. One of the most essential features of DWG TrueView is the ability to accurately measure the area of objects and spaces within a design. In this article, we will walk you through the process of measuring area in DWG TrueView.

Step 1: Open the Drawing

First, open the drawing file that you want to work with in DWG TrueView. You can do this by navigating to the file in your computer's directory and double-clicking on it. The drawing will open in the DWG TrueView interface, ready for you to start measuring.

Step 2: Access the Measure Tool

Once the drawing is open, locate the 'Measure' tool in the interface. It is usually found in the toolbar at the top of the screen. Click on the 'Measure' tool to activate it.

Step 3: Select the Area Measurement

After activating the 'Measure' tool, you will have several measurement options to choose from. Select the 'Area' measurement tool by clicking on it.

Step 4: Define the Area

To measure the area of a specific object or space within the drawing, use your cursor to click on the points that outline the area. For example, if you want to measure the area of a room, click on the corners of the room to define the boundaries.

Step 5: View the Measurement

After defining the area, DWG TrueView will calculate and display the measured area in the units that are specified in the drawing. You can view the measurement in the interface, and it will also be displayed in the measurement toolbar for easy reference.

Step 6: Save or Export the Measurement

Once you have measured the area, you can choose to save the measurement within the drawing file or export it to a separate document. This can be helpful for documentation and collaboration purposes.

With these simple steps, you can easily measure area in DWG TrueView, allowing you to accurately quantify and analyze spaces and objects within your digital designs. This feature is incredibly useful for professionals working in fields such as architecture, engineering, and interior design, enabling them to make informed decisions based on precise measurements.
