    Steel tonnage cautions

    This thread is a reply to a blog feed that was just posted.

    Here is my reply to that blog:

    The tonnage should be calculated using the Cut Length parameter, not the Length parameter. Yes, the value of "Length" will stay the same after the beam is cut by Opening by face or by Reference plane, as you said, but Cut Length will report the correct new length. See attached.

    True... And frankly, this has always been the case. Also when scheduling beam length. Slight brainfreeze from the author (who is normally very well informed)?

      You can also use Volume x 7.8 which will caculate a tonnage based on the medium level detail solid geometry volume

        Ouch!

        You guys were quick to pick this up....

        Total brain freeze.... and shortly after realised the solution and removed the post from the blog.

        Note to self for the future - explore all options and explore them again before blogging.

              That would never have happened to me

              Glenn, the original blog post was fetched here - Do you want me to delete that as well, or would you rather edit the post?

                Well, isn't it good to know that here at Revitforum we do read the blogs, and we read them carefully?

                    Yep, Tonne not 'Ton'

                    so Volumne-m^3 x (density-steel=7.8, or 7.82 to be more precise)
