Why are Regions and Boolean Operations Important?

Regions are important within AutoCAD because they can be used to find out mass properties of the regions such as the controid and moment of inertia relative to the origin.

Regions can also be manipulated by using Boolean Operations in AutoCAD such as Union, Subtract, and Intersect.

Both of these AutoCAD commands make the design of objects more accurate and efficient.
