Dynamo surface area calculations

I got a shape today of which I wanted to know surface areas. This shape was a sat import into a family. Revit will give you a total surface area but not the are of individual faces.

Dynamo for Revit will let you do that. Here is how. Example shape (this was not the shape)

Create this dyn file: (dynamo version 0.81)
The green arrow points to a number slider that will let you control the row number at which you put the data in excel. 
 For this example I select three faces. Press Finish and run and here you go.
Is the area correct? I don't know. I did a little test surface and there it was right.
