How to create a worksheet which extract the correct volume for the 3d model that i have created

Recommended Posts

I have created a 3d chair just by extracting multiple basic shapes.

 

And i cannot find a way to extract volume for that.

 

Can anyone suggest a way

Set the chair in its own Class, then set the criteria to find the Chair. If one has the Chair selected, VW will automatically highlight the Layer & Class & allow one to select other criteria.

Here you have a basic chair in Class called "Chair"

Here is the function in a WS for VOLUME

With the Chair object selected &  the Criteria chosen in the WS the Layer & Class are automatically selected by VW & one may select other Criteria

The volume result. This also works if the Chair is a Solid Addition

Thanks @Jim Smith!

 

I don't think I've ever clicked on Insert < Criteria while an object was selected (though I admittedly don't use worksheets all that much). The Paste Attributes thing is helpful, thank you!

Thank you Jim Smith for your clear explanation...

if i have different material or texture with different extrudes in my chair how to extract those materials volume, area for making BOQ( Bill of quantity)

In Revit I find it very easy with material take off Schedules 

I have attached chair image with different material for clarity

For making BOQ for cabinets which have many extrudes and different materials into it how to extract volume, area quickly other than applying function and criteria individually for each extrudes or class. 2017-06-13.png.af498354b1649442e1685f43b8d193db.png

RJR, I think that each "set" of items one wants to calculate would have to be in a Class or have some other criteria for the WS to differentiate, calculate & total. (i.e. Cushion, Legs, Backrest, etc)
