I would like to be able to model all the flashing on a project. (wall, window & roof) and then pull off the quantities in a schedule. I am fairly new to Revit, could anyone advise as to how I could go about this?

I really think this may be overkill but you can do it.  The question I have is how do you want the numbers?  What units?   In most cases, you only need linear feet of a flashing type.   Areas are a whole lot harder to do. 

 

So attached is an image of a hotel with modeled metal wall copings that are scheduled.   Area is not available but size and length is as you can see by the schedule.

 

So if you want to schedule it .... you have to model it or have it included in another element.

I just need lengths so that will work. How is it modeled? Is a family that you just adjust the length?

These are simple wall sweeps as you can see by the schedule.

Thanks, I have schedule working. Is there a way to take the flashing profiles that I have created and use them in a legend? I would like to add dimensions to the profiles so that I can send the manufacturer the flashing profile with dimensions as well as the lengths.

When you look at legend components, you will not see any wall sweep profiles.   But so what, just use the detail component in your legend like this Hickman one.
