is there a way to extract the surface area of created in place families, solid extrusions?   i'd like to be able to do this for countertops.  right now, i copy the outline of the solid form to a filled region then clik on the properties of the filled region and just read it.  pretty clumsy.

For parametric countertops, this could be scheduled depending on how you build your family.

these are irregular shapes, not parametric: just created in place families.

I am suffering the same problem with a different modeled in place.

I have a wall that is basically bare studs wrapped on one side with strips of translucent plastic (image attached)

I am now trying to figure out the area of plastic.. how many 4x8 sheets will be required.  

In order to ensure the panels are aligned I used a solid blend (the main arc actually is a cone shape, narrowing towards the ceiling).

 

Any advice?  Even how to re-build it in a schedule-able method? Maybe a wall hosted to a solid?

Zakazai.  Yes, here it is...

You can paint surfaces with a material, then use a material schedule to quantify areas.  
  1. Create a material with a name of your choice...   manage/materials/"+" button at bottom/right clik and rename.   http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2017/ENU/?guid=GUID-AC8941BE-1A36-49E6-A1EC-57EB7AEAB345
  2. Paint the surfaces you are interested in.   Note - you have to paint while in the model in place mode.  http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2017/ENU/?guid=GUID-8BAA7C07-D174-4F02-AA81-239FD33BE363
  3. Create a material schedule:  view/schedule/material schedule   https://db.tt/FFy3hLrHOS
  4. You can filter for just the one name you are interested in of course.  create all the materials with a prefix to yield sorted schedules.  Example:  use a name like  "CTOP_at_xxx" to make a schedule with all the ctops in the job.  https://db.tt/MRwwyyS38i  
The field "material: as paint"  reports as "no", even though it was indeed painted.  Not important, this method works well.
