**Finding area of irregular shapes**in AutoCAD, I do it this way: use polyline to snap to every vertex of the irregular shapes, input C to close the polyline for the last vertex, the area of this polyline object is the area of the irregular shapes, then select the polyline, and input command LIST to get all information of this polyline, include the area and perimeter etc.
