    Creating a schedule for floor areas - families and model in-place mass

    Hi, I want to create a table for the floor area totals in my model using a schedule. The project is a site master plan and I've used families for most of the buildings (with floors within) and I had to model more complex forms using 'model in-place'. For example I have two 'office' buildings but I've used a family for one and 'model in-place' for the other. What is the easiest way to be able to calculate the total 'office' floor area in a schedule table? How can I get both these 'office' buildings, modelled in different ways, counted together? I hope my explanation was clear enough, thanks.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but why would you use a family or an in place family to model an office building? Just wondering.

    To answer your question, look into making an area plan. In the ribbon, architecture tab> room and area panel> area tool. It will ask you to select what levels to make an area plan from. I would suggest you don't "automatically create the area boundary". It never works the way you want it, at least not for me. Then, just tag and schedule the areas.

      You could:

      Use Masses to create the two bldgs. Then create Levels, and from them create Mass Floors. Then create Areas and Area Plans. Then create Area Schedules.

      Or--build Walls, Floors, Levels--and do the same as above.

        Hi, I was in a bit of a rush when writing the question, without having Revit infront of me. What I meant was that I created families as simple massing representing buildings - boxes. I've created levels. Will now create Mass Floors. Then create Areas and Area Plans. Then create Area Schedules as suggested. Thanks for the help
