    Steel tonnage shedule in Revit 2019

    Hi everyone,
    I am working on a project that requires steel tonnage schedule (using Revit 2019). I am totally lost. I need help

    The steel shapes that you use can be scheduled and their W parameter represents their weight per foot (imperial assumption). The metric content has their metric weight. Schedules are most effective when they are focused on individual categories, like Structural Framing versus Columns. You'll also need to filter out other materials like concrete if you have that type too. The results can give you the total for framing and another total for columns and combined gives you the overall number. There are other categories for connections and such if you're trying to dig deeper into miscellaneous metal fabrication.

    Thank you for your response. In Revit 2019, there is no W parameter. I have attached the steel properties for your attention. I am confused on how to generate formula for tonnage from the attached properties. Thank you

    Sorry. I thought they'd plugged this hole. Must be most everyone already has the workaround built in to their templates now. The trick is to add a shared parameter to map the built in W parameter (column and framing) to one that can be used in a schedule, read their article explaining it.

    Another alternative, without having to open families, is to use schedules, based on the Volume property of structural members.

    For example, for metric units:
