incorrect calculation of polygon areas

Not applicable
Noticed the following error. When constructing a section of an element, a bent metal strip with initial dimensions of 265x1 mm2. When measuring the area of ​​the object turned out 0.000185 mm2. This does not correspond to the area of ​​265 mm2. With an increase in the element by 1000, we obtain an area of ​​375 m2, but if this is divided by 1,000,000, then we get an area much larger than the original 265 mm2. How to calculate the weight of a metal element, if its surface area is not so accurate?

I am not quite sure what it is that you are trying to measure and how. Could you upload a simple pln with nothing else in it, and point me to where to check the measurements?
