Is there a way Revit will do a quantity take off of say items like: Concrete (CU) Drywall (SF), floor tile (SF) etc. I know how to do this with dorrs, and windows, and objects, by assigning a cost and manufacter, etc to a door, and object, but is there a way to do this with drywall (ceilings, and walls) CMU, concrete, etc, and get a quantity, and cost estimate based on that. I knwo the walls have to be buit corretly, but can this be done? I work for an Architecture office that our projects are municipal and are on very strict budgets.

 Thanks

Yes, what you're looking for is a 'Material Take-off Schedule'. Not sure if that came in at 2009 or 2010 ?
Works great.

I caution you, Revit is not an estimating or a material take-off program.  That being said, it can give you lots of useful information but you have to temper everything with your knowledge of how the model is built. 

 

For instance.  How did you create your interior walls?  Do they extend to the level above?  If so, does the drywall go to the bottom of the floor abov or just above the ceiling?  Is this true for both sides of the wall?  TYhis one example shows how everything will look right in the model but your quantities will be way off.

 

So how do you handle this?  Perhaps these walls should be taken off by linear length of wall and you figure your studs and finishes seperately - not by SF in the model.

 

Remember, you can schedule everything and you can add formula's to schedules... so yes, you can add a cost factor and multiply SF x Cost/SF to get a value...

 

Good Luck.

 

BTW :  I would rather take selective information out of Revit and massage it in Excel . In there you could add notes as to why you used the information they way you did.
