    Question Export Element dimensions to schedule/excel?

    Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to Revit.

    I have created a parametric cabinet that contains about 10 parts/elements (sides, back, doors etc).

    Is there anyway to export the dimensions of those parts to a schedule? I have tried this many times but Revit only seems to count the cabinet as a whole unit rather than breaking it down and providing information on all of its parts/elements.

    Can anyone provide a solution on this?

    Thanks.

    Look into shared parameters in your family/project. Shared parameters can appear in tags and schedules.

    Look into shared, nested families. Essentially you'd create a basic rectangular prism family (and any other shapes) that you load into the cabinet family and construct it out of those. If they are instance parameters then you can associate them to various parameters in the cabinet family and if the nested family is shared then you can schedule each one in the project.

    Shared & Nested families is the way to go. The biggest advantages are it allows you to use a Type parameter and swap parts on the fly rather than having to edit the family and if you update the nested family it will update every instance in the project.
