I'm trying to calculate the wall area per room.  I've been seaching help and forums on here and can't really find what I need.  Can someone help me out or point me to some online directions?  I would like to break the wall area down even further by calculating the areas for the north, south, east and west walls, but am wondeirng how it would calculate an angled wall.

 

I would like this all listed in the room schedule.

 

Another concern I have is my rooms are set up with 11' high walls but I have a ceiling at 8' will the wall area be calcluated off of the 11' or the room boundry of 8' ceiling?

I'm still working on this problem.  I've nixed the room area per wall and would like to just get the total wall area per room.

 I can calculate the wall area in a wall schedule, but then it doesn't sort by room.

I would like to add a field in my Room Schedule that calculates the total wall area per room.  When I go to add a field I see where it says calculated value, but I can't get a formula to work.  At least I would need it to do is multiply the perimeter of the room by the ceiling height, but then again it doesn't subtract the openings for doors/windows... 

 

I'm also working in Revit 2009.

I don't think that you can do this normally in Revit, but here's a work around that you might consider.

Remove the internal finish layer from your walls.

Create a new wall that consists only of the finish layer(s).

Draw a small rectangle of this wall type and set the correct height into the walls.  Copy them into each room.

Use the align tool to align to align and lock them to each wall within the room (this works for angled walls also).

Join the walls to the main walls.  You can give each wall a mark, such as Room 1 South (or R1S).

A wall schedule can now sort by room and give the area for each wall in the room.  It will also cut out for the doors and windows and can show if it's north, south etc.  You can append this to a room schedule on your sheet.  Obviously if you have many rooms this may take a little while, but it can achieve what you're trying to do.
