Room Stamp

One of the Additionals that you can plan from the room elements link is Room Stamp. This tool will calculate the circumference and area of closed areas automatically.

Creating a Room Stamp

How a stamp is made is demonstrated by an example. Before using Room Stamp, it is recommended that you change to the Top projection.

4.A further click in the area to be measured causes it to be surrounded with a purple frame, see screenshot on left.
5.The area is now selected. If necessary, you can click on other areas in addition. All areas selected will be framed in blue. The calculation shown below refers to all areas framed in blue.
