Hi all. I have a question about material takeoffs. Say you have a wall with several layers and the most inner layer is a plaster or a paint. Then you have some cabinets, radiators, etc, just in front of the wall. When you want Revit to calculate the quantity of the plaster, you want the area, occupied by cabinets, radiators, etc. excluded from that quantity. Is this possible?

I don't think so. Not if you use the same wall type. Create a new wall type for the sections of wall that have cabinets etc. with the correct wall layers.

for calculations matter i would make openings to the walls in that area where the cabinets are. Revit of course do not calculate opening on the wall do that on wall profile too.

I disagree. Just use a different wall type behind the cabinets.

Ok, thank you for replies. I hoped that there's some more efficient way, but it's knowing there isn't is still better than not knowing.
