    Yeah, model the way it's built, i'm all for that. But you say all layers, to model more than 2 layers per wall or floor type is too much, in my opinion. Sometimes we have 7+ layers in a wall structure.

    Yes ! I agree, for big projects that will be a little bit more effort, in our case here we do a lot of renovations; so multilayer walls don't work very well, that's why I've decide to adopt as work-flow to model all walls and layers as separated components.

    7 layers is a bit much, but if your wall is 400-500 mm thick your quantification will be very inaccurate.

    Modeling every layer separately IMHO is just way too much work for the return it may give, at least not with the way we do things in this office.

    Thank you for your answers,

    My thought was for sure to separate the structural elements (wall, floors) from the archtectural. So, it will be easier after to isolate only the structural elements and export them for the engineers..
