How can I get the gross volume of a building out of revit?

I know how to find the volumes and areas for rooms and the gross area for the different floor plans.

Does somebody have an idea? 

 

thx!

You can have more than one area plan.  Just do an area plan but use the exterior of your building.

thx for your reaction 

I know it's possible to create another area plan from another level, but i am searching for a gross volume (inclusive exterior and interior walls) of my building.

Hi, draw the lines around the area you want, then go to "Room and Area" and pick "area Plan" and choose in Type:"Gross Building", go to "Area Boundary" and pick the lines you made before (around the model)  then pick "Area" and click inside the area....

To do this, as far as I understand, you need to perform some math.  Get the gross area for each floor, and in a schedule, create a calculated value, multiply the area by the height from floor to floor getting you volume.  Then You only need to get the grand total of the calculated value and you have your gross volume.

You could go through your room schedule and use the calculate totals to get the total volume of all your rooms.  However, as you have pointed out, this will be to the interior faces of elements and it is possible if you don't rooms everywhere to miss bits.

As such, when I've needed to do this previously I've just created a quick Mass form that filled the extents of my building and then went to its properties to find out its volume.  Depending on this complexity of the form this can be either really quick or a little tedius.

HTH.
