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

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
