Is there a way to get a rounding function in the the Calculated value? I dont see it in the functions. I want to round up the value of the result of the area divided by the occupant load factor to the next highest integer.

Hey Guys, I'm doing some drawings for exterior cladding panels and want to include a schedule. I'm having a problem with grouping panels that are the same size. I understand that they don't group because they are not EXACTLY the same size so I want to make a new calculated value that will round everything to the nearest 1/16th of an inch and then sort/group using that value. I also understand that Revit is designed for things to be perfect but I'm providing a schedule to a fab shop with measuring tapes so giving values to a 0.001" holds little value. And showing multiple lines items with the same values will get the fab guys "excited".

Attached is a screen shot from my schedule, image on the left is the schedule set to the units I want, the image on the right is the same schedule with the width units expanded to 3 decimal places showing how close they are without being the same.

I found this for Inventor but don't understand the math:

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

sorry nevermind, i figured it out, but in case anyone else is wondering... here's what I did:

(to make things a little more complicated, my drawing is in millimeters but our fab shop requires imperial dimensions)

I created a calculated unitless value called "Rounded Width": round(Width / 25.4 mm * 16 / 1) * 1 / 16

Next I created a calculated Length value called "Calculated Width": Rounded Width * 25.4 mm

Sort by Calculated Width, change it to appear as "Width" and hide the other two columns.

Sorry if this is confusing, I don't really get it myself but it works!
