    Steel member Schedule

    I am trying to configure revit structure to show total steel member tonnage at the bottom of the schedule.
    managed to get total beam count. See screen shot attached.
    Help would be appreciated. Have been messing around with filters/grouping without success.

    thx

    Hi Rabbs. Not enterily sure that RST work the same way as RAC, but if it does... Go into the schedule properties, and under the Formatting tab, check the "Calculate Totals" for the Tonnes parameter, and in the Sorting/Grouping tab, make sure that you have a Footer, which minimum includes "Totals".

      Go to the Formatting Tab. select the tonnage-parameter and check "Calculate totals". That should do it.

          One thing to watch...I do not believe you can schedule tonnage (Tons) in Revit. You can schedule tonnage (Tonnes) which is ~2200lbs by using structural force. So if you are in the US and are wanting Tons you will need to add an other parameter to convert Tonnes to Tons (or lbs to tons) or just schedule pounds.

            gdoherty0102 is correct. You will have to use a formula parameter to get tons (2,000lbs) the OOTB steel framing has a parameter named "W" this should give you the correct weight per lineal ft wt of the beam. However this is not always 100% true and it doesn't take into account any plates... It should be close enough for a rough estimate.
