2D / 3D & BIM Takeoff Length vs width of measured area_dimension view_expression editor

      How do I know which is the length and which is the width when using the dimension editor?


      Length x axis? 2000

      Width y axis? 2800

      Measured dimension tab Area input box equation: ({Length}+1)*({Width}+1) = 10.6

      This gives and area of 10.6m but when I do this on my calculator : (2+1)*(2.8+1)=11.4

      I have tried to use the expression editor to increase the pit excavation to include a work area of 0.5 metres but the area given by CostX doesn’t match the area given by a manual calculation and I can’t tell what I am doing wrong.
