Hey,Iam using Revit 15 - I am about to make quantity takeouts, and I realise I havent been drawing the skirting boards. Its a rather complex projekt with 90 residences.Does anyone have a good routine to model skirting boards? I would estimate there is around 3500 - 4000 meters of skirtingboards total in the whole projectI was thinking about creating the skirting boards as wallsweeps, but as far as I know, its not possible to draw quantities from wallsweeps!??I only need the total running meters of the skirting boards - and not necessarily drawn in the model.

They are accounted for in specifications and detail drawings. ( yes - I am trying to avoid modeling it ;-) )Does anyone have experience or an opinion about this??

If you can segregate the walls where the skirts would be, then you already have your total length.

If your exterior wall types that will host the skirt board are the same, you can schedule these walls.

Is there a way to control whether Revit calculates the areas and lenghts from the outside, inside or center of the walls?It makes a difference around corners etc.I guess it's set to measure from center by default!?

This is a good time to learn by simple, short experiments.   In a new project,

  • do a simple 10'x10'x10' box with a simple wall.  Now do your schedule and compare teh areas.
  • Change the wall type to one that has multiple, different material layers and use a material takeoff.
  • as a final experiment, edit the wall joins and change them to mitered instead of the default butt joint.

These experiments will serve you well.

Hey again,I dont get it. I can see the areas of each side of the box is calculated differently. The length is calculated from the middle of the wall. In the material takeoff i cant calculate the totals of the material lenght.. But is it possible to control whether i will calculate the interior lenght/area or the exterior lenght/area.?How can i do it?
