    Unit Area in the Titleblock

    Hi All,

    I don't know if someone else has asked this question before.

    Is there a way to show automatically the area of a unit in the title-block?

    When I do the marketing plan for one specific unit I would like to drag the view (of that unit) in the sheet and show its area in the title-block.

    I thought I could add an area schedule to the title-block but Revit doesn't allow to do that.

    Has someone tried anything else before? Any solution?

    Thank you all in advance for your help.:thumbsup:

    Marco

    Nativity? No. How areas and units are defined varies from firm to firm.
    If you do it enough and your method is consistent you could write a dynamo script that fetches the area and writes it to a sheet parameter.

      you can put a project schedule on the sheet and just filter for the unit/s required.

        Good point - I was focused on the "automatically" part of the request.

          ...Automation you mean, where the inputs are extrapolated. That's my BIM Nerdiness coming out, lol.

          So I remove wall bounding setting on all interior Unit walls. Then use a Massing family to "Label" my Unit Rooms (rooms within the Units) with Mass Tags that would track surface SF & WxH if desired, but only in the Documented (Typical) Unit Type & not done in every instance, which only the Room Element is. As for those Unit Sheets for Marketing/Presentation I would have a unique parameter to filter out the Unit content like Finishes/Doors/FFE onto "Unit" schedules. So the whole Unit would have the Room Element associated to it whole "Net" area. I would use an Area View Type if Gross SF'ages are needed/desired.

            Slippery slope... even with 2018's sorting of schedules, heavy filtering/isolation of schedules (IMO) can lead to exponential growth of labour - and whilst I understand the desire (to have such nuclear values reported on sheet, especially in the case of marketing plans) I still always push for such (schedule) data to be captured in a single output - that gets married back to the drawing by reference.
