Has anyone out there had any luck with this?? UDA touts Revit takeoff compatibility with their estimating and RSMeans and Revit/Autodesk is an acknowledged partner, yet neither of them really discuss the specific process. Either it's extremely straightforward and something on my system isn't working right or the two apps need to be setup in someway so that they are able to connect the Excel file correctly. According to the single page discussing multiple programs you export to TXT save as Excel and import into a blank estimate. Magic or Vodoo, I don't know. On my end all that happens is the Excel file opens up and that's it. Any help... great appreciated!DougLake Tahoe

Wow, ten years later and still no responses. We have recently acquired UDA constructionsuite and are going through the painful process of trying to use the CAD intergration feature of OnCost estimating.

Essentially, this feature is useless, if and when it works.

An entire all-encompassing, unfiltered, uncategorized materials takeoff must be made in revit. Then exported into a delimeted text file. Then opened in excel and saved as a .xls file. Then imported into OnCost.

And then, it does't provide any information! It's importing all the material areas and volumes and does not use any of the information whatsoever to developed an estimate. Instead it lumps everything into assemblies (not individual materials) and only quantifies the individual count of the elements. Essentially useless.

This is not a Revit issue, it is an issue with your other program.


If you understand Revit, you can get a material report showing materials and their areas.
