    Building Assembly Model (BAM)

    I am now measuring the structure, finishes and all the parts of the construction to budget it.

    I would like to know which is in your opinion the fastest and correct way to model in revit for measuring after elaborating the project.

    I am dividing the structure from the finishes, for example the floor is composed by two floors one is the finish and one the structure this way I can easy schedule by type and precisely get measurement.



    Is that correct or would you model one floor only with all the layers?

    What about measuring paintings?

    Thank you

    Separate floors (or roofs) for finishes, unless it's just sealer on concrete. Separate walls for wall finishes, except for Paint and wallpaper, both of which I use the Paint tool for.

      That's what I thought.

      But I read a post from a BIM Architect saying that we should never do this because we are duplicating elements and making the model more complex and incorrect because the correct way is to make parts.

      It's in spanish:

        It's also (only) an opinion.

          And in my opinion, their opinion sucks.

            2nd'd.

            Shyock - the important thing is what works for you - and what caveats are in place based on whatever outcomes that that might produce.

            No quantification will ever be (technically) 1:1 correct, in that there are always assumptions and always waste (as I'm sure you're aware) - the key is to define how close you get, and what needs to factored accordingly.

            As for parts? Puke.

            As for modelling as proposed? We model in much a similar fashion even in design, regardless of desires to takeoff or not.

              Your statement contradicts itself.

                So does your model. [emoji854]
