I am doing an addition to a house and the size of the addition is an important factor. After I have the design set I go into area mode and set it the way I want and then get the size from that. The number given seemed a little bigger than I wanted so I exported the dwg to autocad and checked it there using the polyline method which is very accurate. Sure enough the Softplan numbers were 72 sq. ft. larger. I even triple checked it in Softplan but it kept coming out the same. Has anyone else ever seen this? What could be the cause for the discrepancy?
