I need to create a material take off for the floors on my project. Simple enough, but I need the TO to report both the area after the shaft openings and before. Revit gives me the area with the shafts deducted but how can I then create a formula so that I can also see next to it in the schedule a gross area TO including the openings as part of that area?

please help

THANKS

Tricky one.... one thought may be to try using Design Options... create two options and have the floors duplicated in both and also in one have the shaft opening... then you can schedule the floors from each option into 2 separated schedule tables..

Otherwise you will need to create an additional formula column (calculated value) in you schedule table which looks at the area of the floor and then adds the area of the shaft (manual as I don't think you could link the saft area dynamically)

Design options can really be complicated and cause you problems.  I think I would do it as two floors.  One is the floor with openings as you already have.  The other being just the shafts.  Call this floor "shaft openings" but make its material transparent.  If it causes you trouble in plans, you could always put in it a different workset that is turned off in all views.

Ja true... they can be compicated... what is really needed is for the Revit development team to allow interaction between objects that work with the one you are scheduling such as floor slabs and shafts etc. A good example of this requirement is with my structural clients... they all want to be able to schedule the columns and the supports e.g. piles in one table and have them automatically marked with the same reference number.

One for the future releases i guess :o)
