Digging Deep with Revit Cut and Fills

Though not really designed for Civil work (road layout and drainage etc), Revit does allow the user to generate terrain (topography) from scratch, imported DWGs or DXF files, or even by importing a CSV points file. Most Revit users know how to do this, but what many don't know is that Revit can calculate the cut and fill volumes from an original terrain with that of a developed site.

This helps the user to determine the costs of landscape modification during site development.

Creating cut and fills is a very straight forward process, but not that many people seem to have heard that revit can do this... so here's the tip

Hope this is useful to some of the new users out there :o)

Just checked and yes, as long as you check the Include Elements From Linked Files option within the Schedule Properties, then this does work across linked files

Hey, just curious about your tip link above - any chance that info is still out there somewhere?  The link is not active any longer.  Thanks.
