Project 1 : Calculating materials for the building

In this project the cost of material can be done in this schedule as follows:

  • in Material Takeoff Schedule Add the Field: Material:Cost which means cost per Unit
  • complete this column with values (price per unit from Manufacturer)
  • create another Field : Calculated Value (Type:Currency) with Formula: Material:Volume*Material:Cost/1 ….this divide by 1 is done in order to loose the cubic meter ,otherwise Revit will think that this is a volume….This field represents the total value per material….
