I would like to know the best workflow to create a massing study for a large plot of land with many buildings (30 buildings). I would like to assign different levels for each building type as some are residential, others office and others retail etc - Therefore the floor to floor heights are all different. I would like to generate an area schedule, change the masses and see the areas change.

I understand how to do this with one mass, or multiple masses using the Mass Floors command with the same levels assigned to all masses (Project Levels). Surely I dont have to put all the different masses into separate Revit files at this early stage of the project?

Many thanks for any help.

I think others could speak better to this, but you may consider using Autodesk's Vasari for that. It is meant for the quick massing studies that will go into revit, and it is free for a while.

Thanks for your reply.

I'll have a look into that, but I would prefer to know how to do this in Revit as i think it's a common starting point of all our large scale urban design projects. To boil down the question to a basic level, is it possible to assign specific levels to a conceptual mass, as one mass may be a hospital, another a school - with different levels.

Cheers,

Ben
