Default Projection area

Is it possible to determine the projection area of an object in cfx post? Say for instance you what to determine the cw value of a car you need the projection area of the car. I have only succeeded in creating a plane at an arbitrary coordiante and calculate the fluid area, subtracted from the total area.

There was an undocumented command in 5.7.1 that did this (>dumpviewer file.txt), which would report the projected area of the visible surfaces at the command prompt. It doesn't appear to work in 10.0, however. Maybe it will get fixed for 11.0.
