Hi, 

 

is there any way to add a formula to room tag parameter so in the plan it will show not 100% area but for instance 97%?

I know I can change it in the area schedule but client asked me to show 97% areas in floor plans aswell. 

 

Many thanks for any help

hah

we are working on big shopping centre and tagging retail units with areas. 97% or sometimes we show 95% are demonstrating the lettable areas with no internal walls or storage spaces.

I know figure 97 is riddick. (thats what our client demanded)

:D

I might be wrong, but I don't see why you couldn't do this with a shared parameter.  If you created a shared parameter and called it something like "Recalculated Area" and loaded it into your project, then you could let revit calculate the gross area and then for the recalculated area just apply a formula like "area/0.03" or something to that effect.  You would have to create a custom tag at uses the Recalculated Area parameter. 

I haven't tried this myself, but I've done similar things when I've needed specialized room tags.
