While a regular Revit Schedule reports on a single category of data such as Doors, Plumbing Fixtures, or Structural Foundations, a Revit multi-category schedule can report on many of the Revit model categories at once, which can be useful for quantity takeoffs. Sounds straightforward, but the catch is that some of the model categories are being excluded. What’s missing are the system families such as Walls, Floors, etc.
Ideate BIMLink's multi-category method includes all the model category data that you need to do a comprehensive takeoff AND lets you select, on a per category basis, which elements you want to include. Furthermore, you can include not just the Length and the Volume, but also the Area.
Here are the steps to manage your BIM quantity data with Ideate BIMLink.
The quickest way to get started is to use the sample link called "Construction_QTO".
If you are using the provided template, or your own version of an Excel file with a pivot table, you will want to refresh the pivot table data. You can do this from the PivotTable Tools>Options as shown.
