Surface area calculations


Recommended Posts

Hi All


I am looking for a solution regarding the calculation of a surface area. I am looking to scan the hull of a boat. This data will be in a DXF format. Can someone please let me know if it is possible to then calculate the actual surface area of the entire hull. I am currently exploring some options and am looking for a solution. I would appreciate any help or insights

The accuracy will come down to the number of points, provided the hull does not do an inverse you can triangulate all the points and get the total wetted area of the triangles. The triangles will be 3dfaces so can workout the correct face area. Have it somewhere done for grassed areas.
