I can’t seem to get =FACEAREA(“Color A01”) to work. It always reports as “0”, even when I test multiple colours and the sizes etc.
What does work is =FACEAREA("") which returns the area (inside and outside) of all surfaces regardless of colour.
Also, can this function only report in inches^2? I mean I could add in the constant conversion but that’s a bit lame.
Screenshot and example SKP attached.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Either choose a color/material with no space or rename with a underscore in lieu of a space.
You do need to convert, plus facearea("") returns the back faces too. It pays to insert a de-scaler too, to make the formula update on a change

Absolutely perfect advice, plus you even answered what would have been my next hurdle too (with the de-scaler)!
Let me know when you’re ready to renew your SketchUp sub, I’ll put in a good word.
