Revit doesn't seem to want to be consistent in how it calculates room areas. Sometimes it grabs walls, sometimes room separations. It will also calculate area differently depending on the orientation of a room separation line. Has anyone everhad this problem before?

If had that behavior, but it was always something I was doing wrong. If walls aren't joined correctly you will have problems. When I'm having trouble with rooms, I use a room tag that reports square footage. If it squirts out an s.f. value for the room, it is enclosed by some boundaries. By right-clicking the tag you can look at the blue line to figure out what boundaries define the room. If the room tag gives you an error message of "not enclosed" you will have to figure out where you didn't get things joined properly. If you get other error messages, choose the explain error message and revit will help you. Hope this helps. If not, an example of your problem would help.

Consistancy would be nice.

My issue here is that I am manually placing separation lines to define a room but Revit is dividing that room up even more.  For example I have a fitting room area that has a common corridor which leads into several enclosed fitting rooms  including disabled and returns room.  Once I use the Room function Revit splits this whole area up into individual rooms which is not what I want.  Is there a way around this???? PLEASE

Use "non-bounding" option for those items. see also Setting, room and area settings for more options.

Ripper

Ive had alook at thoses settings, but I think there could be far more settings to make the room calculation far more powerfull.
