    Top of Footing

    When creating a footing (or other elements) Revit gives the bottom elevation. Is there a way to get the top of elevation to read in a tag LIVE? We have a work around that works really well, but it is not live/automated which a few people have an issue with...

    Any ideas on how to get my tops to pull in a tag?

    You can use the spot elevation for the top of footing. Or you can create a level for the top of footing.

      When I tag the footing I would like the top elevation to be part of the tag.

        You could use a formula to calculate the + depth... Level + Depth????

          Level is not an accessible parameter, it would have to be user defined. The family tells you that it is hosted to Level 2, but does not tell you what level 2 is at.

            I would also like to have the same type of foundation tag for isolated footings (incl. footing type with top and bottom elevations...maybe even volume too). Is this possible? Thanks in advance.

              gdoherty, I wanted to have that kind of tag as well, but as you said, level is not accessible.
              So I add in a parameter called "top of foundation" in the foundation family then let the user key-in that value.

              Then use formula to calculate the "bottom of the footing" or "Pile cut-off level" based on what user key-in.
