    QTO Method

    I am doing the estimation of a project and I would like to know which method are you currently using for extracting QTO from the Revit model.

    QTO of what? Depending on what you need takeoffs for you could use schedules or there are 3rd party programs to help. Or Autodesk Quantity Takeoff (which I know nothing about).

      The Quantity Take Off of all the elements to calculate the estimated cost the most difficult takeoff are the walls and finishes. I was trying to use Naviswork but I am having some troubles with finishes QTO.

      I think Autodesk QTO does not exist now it is Naviswork.

        well, I'm a specialty Revit user (curtain wall) and I can tell you that I spent Months figuring out how to do QTO for curtain wall parts and pieces and how to be able to optimize parts lengths to manufacturers standard extrusion stock lengths. It's a bitch, and that's just curtain wall. IMO what you are asking is sort of like asking "how do I build a Ferarri?" It can be done but, you've got a long hard road in front of you.

          What you absolutely should not do is blindly trust a model for any QTO. If it wasn't modeled with that in mind, there's not just a good chance but a near certainty that the information won't be as correct as you might think it is/should be.

          But, assuming the model is in good shape, I would use Revit Schedules to extract any and all (or nearly all I guess) of this.
