Q - question

How to find the surfarce area of a sphere, cone or other 3D solid?

A - answer Use the AREA command with the Object option to calculate the area of a solid. Surface area of the selected 3D solid is displayed as "Area".

You have to use a true solid 3D body, not a mesh - e.g. a revolved object has to be a product of the REVOLVE command, not REVSURF.
